Fertilisers

Nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium are key agro-nutrients for crops. Tata Chemicals is present in all three crop nutrition groups through its fertiliser product base that spans:
Urea (a nitrogenous fertiliser)
Di-ammonium phosphate (contains both nitrogen and phosphorus)
Nitrogen phosphorous potassium complexes (contains all three nutrients)
Single super phosphates (phosphorus based).

Tata Chemicals is the market leader in the urea and phosphatic fertiliser segments. Additionally, the company imports and sells muriate of potash (MOP) and di-ammonium phosphate and supplies organic materials and other specialty fertilisers such as calcium nitrate and zinc sulphate.

Urea
The nature of the soil in many Indian regions is such that nitrogenous fertilisers are an important input for most crops. Urea is an important nitrogenous fertiliser and Tata Chemicals is a major manufacturer of the product in India.

The company makes urea at its fertiliser complex in Babrala in Uttar Pradesh, a state in north India. The complex has an installed capacity of 864,000 tonnes per year, which constitutes nearly 12 per cent of the total urea produced by India's private sector.

The Babrala facility, among the best of its kind in India and comparable to the best in the world, has set new standards in technology, energy conservation, productivity and safety. It is the only fertiliser plant in the country to use dual feedstock: natural gas or naphtha, or a combination of both.

Tata Chemicals has an established presence in the north Indian states of Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana, Bihar and Uttaranchal, which account for 48 per cent of the total domestic demand for urea. These states account for over 85 per cent of the company's urea sales.

Phosphatic fertilisers
Tata Chemicals manufactures several phosphatic fertilisers, many of which are leading brands in the Indian market. The company makes and sells sodium tripolyphosphate, di-ammonium phosphate, NPK complexes and single super phosphate fertilisers at its Haldia complex in West Bengal in eastern India.

TCL's phosphatic fertilisers, sold under the brand name 'Paras', lead the market in West Bengal, Bihar and Jharkhand. The Haldia facility now has production volumes exceeding 1.2 million tonnes per annum.
