India's Fertilizer Import Market

.

Being an agrarian nation, India faces the challenge of supporting a large number of small and marginal farmers, who often struggle with low productivity and poor crop quality.

The majority of crops in India rely on rainfall and are cultivated repeatedly on the same plots of land, leading to a decline in soil fertility across many regions.

As a result, there has been a growing dependence on nitrogen fertilizers in order to address this issue.

.

One of the main markets for Amoot Iranian Trading Company’s urea and sulfur fertilizers is India.

.

We have numerous urea and sulfur buyers in India, exporting thousand MTs of these chemicals to Indian ports (Nhava Sheva, Mumbai, Kandla, Chennai, etc.) monthly.

As we have our own shipping company and strong relationship with many other transportation companies like IRISL Group, we can handle booking, delivery, custom clearance and all other transportation activities on time and at the lowest possible price.
