The overall net profit growth in the first nine months of FY 2011, on the other hand, was 25.30%, to 15.85 crore from 12.65 crore last year.
In the second quarter of this financial year the company invested significantly in growing its pan India marketing and distribution presence. This has paid off handsomely, as 3QFY11 results show. The company continues to believe in this strategy and has intensified its marketing efforts which is expected to bolster the performance in the coming quarters.
Commenting on the results, Dhirendra Kumar, Founder and Managing Director, Camson Biotech said, “Our effort at Camson to provide sustainable agriculture and deliver healthy food to the Indian consumer is bearing fruit. I am very optimistic that the growing awareness in farmers of our zero residue biocides and unique hybrid seeds will continue to drive demand for Camson Bio Technologies’products in the future. Camson’s future is bright, both domestically and internationally.”
In this quarter, the company has significantly improved its performance in both hybrid seeds and biocides.
Hybrid Seeds – Camson’s hybrid seeds, have shown a robust growth. Especially, chilli, watermelon and tomato hybrid seeds have done extremely well in this quarter. In chillies, the company’s two brands, Gomti and Pennar have done particularly well. In watermelon, its two Icebox brands, Netravati and Vedavati, have surpassed all expectations; and, in tomato, brand Akashganga has done remarkably well.
Biocides and bio-fertilizers – The Company is benefitting from the continuously increasing demand for biocides and bio-fertilisers in India. Its products such as Calbgard, Calbahar, Calphomil, Calnova, Cal-mb, and Calmyte, which replace chemical fertilisers and pesticides, are extremely safe and effective. This segment has done well taking into account the unseasonal rains that lashed the country limiting the use of biocides. While all of them have done exceptionally well, the new Calgard holds the most promise.
Going forward, the focus will be on the newly launched Calgard and on the novel water melon variety Sonmati – a deep yellow skinned, watermelon variety with bright red coloured flesh inside.
