Intro to Fertilizer

We all know fertilizer helps plants grow, but it goes deeper than that


As the leading agri-solutions player in India, we offer a diverse range of products and services across the crop life cycle from seed-to-harvest stages.

We promote technology and farm mechanization for efficient use of resources and to drive farm profitability. Our ‘Farmer First’ approach, quality focus and consumer connect initiatives have helped in gaining the farmer’s trust and has established ‘Gromor’ amongst the most trusted brands in the country.



We are the largest complex fertiliser manufacturer and marketer in the country and offer a wide range of products, customised to the crop and soil needs.

Speciality Nutrients

To address the issues concerning the imbalanced crop nutrient practices, declining fertiliser efficiency and low factor productivity, Coromandel forayed into Speciality Nutrients segment about two decades back


Nearly 70% of the Indian arable soil is organic carbon deficient. With a vision to enrich soil health, we are promoting organic fertilisers derived from natural sources like city waste (organic portion only), sugarcane molasses and its by-products, oil cakes and gypsum.

Organic and Mineral Fertilizers Are the Same to Plants.

Mineral and organic fertilizers contain nutrients in different forms. Ultimately, however, because plants can only take up nutrients in their mineral form, the original fertilizer source makes no difference from a plant nutrition standpoint, No matter what the source, all nutrients are used in exactly the same way by plants with the same effect.

Mineral Fertilizers: Feeding the World.

Today, it would be impossible to feed the planet without mineral fertilizers. The nitrogen produced by the Haber-Bosch synthesis process for mineral fertilizers is vital for producing large crop yields, Scientific research published in 2008 estimated that the lives of nearly half of the world’s population (48%) are only made possible by Haber-Bosch produced nitrogen. (Erisman et al., 2008)

Organic Fertilizers: Feeding the Soil.

Organic fertilizers increase soil health, supporting carbon capture and plant growth. Soil organic matter (SOM) has a strong influence on the overall health of soil and its beneficial functions, By introducing soil organic carbon that helps build up SOM, organic fertilizers stimulate microbial activity, improve soil structure and increase both its water-holding and cation exchange capacity. This can reduce soil erosion and degradation, improve nutrient retention, act as a buffer against soil acidification and limit nutrient losses into waterways. Increased SOM also increases soils’ capacity to capture carbon.

Mineral and Organic Fertilizers: The Perfect Combination

When it comes to using organic and mineral fertilizers there really need not be any competition. Using a combination of the two has been scientifically proven to be the best solution for maximizing plants yields and sustaining healthy soils with the greatest ability to sequester carbon in agricultural soils. Within IPNM, both types of fertilizer have a complementary role to play. Mineral fertilizers supplement the nutrients provided by organic fertilizers with concentrated, consistent and plant accessible nutrients. Organic fertilizers provide beneficial SOM that improves soils’ health (including fertility, structure, water retention capacity and biological activity), and ability to sequester carbon.

Slow- and Controlled- Release and Stabilized Fertilizers

Several additives and treatments have been developed to modify the availability of nutrients in mineral (and even some organic) fertilizers. These include ‘slow-release fertilizers’ that break down gradually to release plant available nutrients (e.g. methylene urea), ‘controlled-release fertilizers’ that are physically encapsulated in a protective coating (e.g. polymer-coated fertilizers), and ‘stabilized fertilizers’ that slow N cycling in the soil (e.g. fertilizers treated with urease and/or nitrification inhibitors). All these products aim to extend the release of the nutrients from mineral fertilizers to better match crops’ requirements.
