Yara has been supplying finished fertilizers as well as fertilizer raw materials to the Indian market for over two decades.
Towards the end of the 1990s, Yara recognized that with the changing economic scenario, the Indian consumer was seeking higher quality of fruits and vegetables. This change implied that the Indian growers needed to relook at the nutrition of the high end crops, to deliver improved yields and quality
Yara initiated trials of its Premium Offering products with ICAR Institutes in order to collect local trial data and worked with the Indian authorities to have the same registered under the Fertiliser Control Order ( FCO ).
Once the products were approved under the FCO, Yara partnered with some of the leading Indian fertilizer companies in India to provide high quality Premium Offering products to the Indian growers.
We soon realised that to implement the Yara Crop Nutrition concepts and to service the farmers, it was important to have a presence on the ground. In 2011, Yara set up its own domestic marketing unit headquartered in Pune, Maharashtra. The state of Maharashtra can be called the “California of India” as it has a large area under fruits and vegetables. Our intention is to do business with a purpose – to Create Impact by improving profitability in farming.
Today, Yara India is growing steadily and is expanding its presence in the states of Himachal Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat.
Knowledge makes all the difference at Yara. With our portfolio of quality fertilisers and global knowledge on crop management, we are making a real difference to growers of fruits, vegetables and plantation crops by increasing yields and quality of their produce.
In the last three years, we have carried out extensive demonstrations as well as Knowledge Grows programmes to assist the Indian grower in improving exportable yields. While grapes farmers are already known for their export quality, banana and onion growers are also beginning to export on a regular basis using our crop nutrition programs.
Our mission is to strive for better yield, delivering good returns for end users, customers and society at large.

Where our products come from
Yara India offers a wide range of products that come from a variety of manufacturing facilities. Take a look at some of Yara's production sites.
The Uusikaupunki site consists of three nitric acid plants as well as two fertilizer plants producing nitric acid and fertilizers for the Finnish market and for export. The plant has its own deep-water harbor.
Glomfjord has four production units: Two nitric acid plants, one NPK complex fertilizer plant and one calcium nitrate plant.
Rostock has two nitric acid plants, two nitrate fertilizer plants, one UAN plant and two plants making several qualities of technical ammonium nitrate.
The site has been located since 1929 on the Ghent-Terneuzen canal, a major waterway opening through the Western Scheldt into the North Sea and connecting to European waterways. As with many European fertilizer complexes, development of the site was linked to the availability of coke oven gas from a neighboring coke factory.
Brunsbüttel is located in Germany, on the west coast of Schleswig-Holstein at the point where the Kiel Canal and the River Elbe meet the North Sea. This offers direct access to both the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. The site has two production units, an ammonia plant and a urea plant.
The Tertre production site consist of several plants that produce nitrogen fertilizers and industrial chemicals.
