OCP Group is excited to announce their partnership with India to carry out joint research, development, and promotion of innovative fertilization solutions. Together, they are committed to offering tailor-made fertilizers that meet the specific needs of Indian farmers, engaging in close collaboration with the public sector, agronomic institutes, agricultural federations, and farmers. To ensure success of these efforts, OCP Group has signed Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) with India’s largest public and private sector fertilizer producers. This initiative will enable OCP to supply 1.7 million tons of phosphate fertilizers for the upcoming agricultural season within the next twelve months.

Memoranda were recently signed between OCP Group executives and Indian fertilizer manufacturers in the presence of Dr. Mansukh Mandaviya, India's Minister of Health, Chemicals and Fertilizers, Shri Rajesh Vaishnaw, Ambassador of India to the Kingdom of Morocco, and Mr. Mostafa Terrab, Chairman and CEO of OCP Group.

These agreements will provide Indian farmers with up to 700,000 t of Triple Super Phosphate (TSP), a phosphate-based fertilizer that has the highest phosphate content found in Nitrogen-free granular fertilizers and can be tailored to meet specific needs of plants and soils in India. Customized fertilizers are proven to be better for soil health while reducing waste. The MOUs also call for one million tonnes of Diammonium Phosphate (DAP) to Indian farmers.

Recently, Mr. Soufiyane El Kassi, Chairman and CEO of OCP Nutricrops – a subsidiary providing soil health and plant fertilization solutions, expressed his opinion on the matter at hand- said: “We are pleased with India’s interest in our customized solution (TSP) that significantly contributes to increasing yields, improving farmers’ incomes and accelerating the implementation of sustainable agricultural practices.”
