The Company is planning to increase production capacity of SUPERLINA up to 1 MT per month. 

SUPER GOLD is licensed product for which production from root level to formulation is developed in Bio Division, which is done by only few Companies in India. It increases roots in crops and increases reach of roots to absorb more fertilizers and water which remains untouched otherwise. Use of this product will reduce the use of chemical fertilizers and water that will result in low cost farming to Indian farmers. Mycorrhiza (VAM) increases 10 – 100 fold roots potential to absorb the nutrient from rhizosphere and imparts natural defense against various pathogens. It reduces the use of chemical fertilizer up to 50% and enhances the yield up to 40% of plants.Recently GST council has decided to reduce GST rates from 12% to 5% on fertilizer which is beneficiary step for farmers as well as manufacturers. Company has built up 2000 MT manufacturing capacity for SUPER GOLD. During the Financial Year 2016-17 Company had entered into Manufactured by Marketed by arrangement with “The Maharashtra Agro Industries Development Corporation Ltd” (MAIDC) for Supply of “Mycorrhizal Bio Fertilizer”. During the year 2017-18 Company has started catering to MAIDC and expecting good sales orders from the esteemed organization, which will increase PAT margins. SUPER WONDER is a biological insecticide based on botanical extract produced by anotechnology & formulated as balanced poly-botanicals WS (Water Soluble Concentrate) with nano concentration of Cofactors for plant defines enzymes.This product protects from sucking pests Like, Aphids, Jassids, White Fly, Thrips, Mites etc and fungal pathogens (Mildews, Wilt, Damping off, Leaf spot etc). It has ovicidal effects. Minor insect is easily killed by different natural plant extracts. Besides Poly-botanicals, the extract contains various natural elements responsible for the growth of the plants. It can Boost crops immunity and over all biomass hence yield. This product will come in to the market very shortly.  SOIL RECLAIM: Seven million hectare of Indian soil is either alkaline or sodic hence non-productive for crop. It is a great challenge for scientist to reclaim these soils. Super Crop Safe is at the verge of development of a combination of natural alkaline/sodic microbes with green chemicals having great potential to reclaim it slowly. This will prove again a game changer product for the company.

One must note that it is almost debt free company. 

Dividend: It is regularly dividend paying company. Company has declares 7% dividend for FY17. Recent Development:Gujarat and Rajasthan which arekey markets for Super Crop are facing heavy rains since last week though state governments were quick enough to respond to the situation. This has disrupted supply chains and most importantly agriculture activities have taken hit.  But we believe these are only near term headwinds as most of farmers are covered under state and central governments’ various insurance schemes. Gujarat government may be a little bit more generous of releasing funds to farmers considering elections later in this year. We believe this is beneficiary for Agro Chemicals & Fertilizer sectors. 

Future Outlook: Company is enjoying success of SUPER GOLD which is clearly seen in its June quarter’s number. This growth would be further propelled with the introduction of 1-2 new products every year, which would have distinctive competitive advantage over the target molecules.In addition, the Company will strengthen and expand its reach into new underdeveloped markets and crop segments which will further improve prospects going forward. Institutional tie-ups with the Corporate, for supply of agrochemicals have also started yielding fruits and will contribute to growth of the Company.

Based on above financial & development we strongly believed that SUPER CROP SAFE can give multi-fold returns in coming days. We had recommended this stockin past between Rs.115-135. Now, it is trading around Rs.150. Investors can buy this stock with stop loss of Rs.120 for multi-bagger returns.
