Atash Seeds Pvt. Ltd.
Avesthagen established 'ATASH SEEDS PVT. LTD.' as a vehicle to deliver the latest Agbiotechnology technologies
developed within Avesthagen dealing with agricultural productivity and production.
The forefront technologies developed by Avesthagen and desperately required in India and the developing world are:
HybridFITTM, DroughtFITTM and SalinityFITTM; whereas all countries would benefit
from our NutritionFITTM technology.
As a strategic model, Atash acquired a fully integrated field crop seed company, Swagath seeds, with a portfolio of
Hybrid Seeds of field crops: Maize, Grain Sorghum, Pearl Millet, Rice, Cotton and Sunflower. In 2009, Atash became a
JV with VCO of France partnering with Avesthagen. Atash is in the process of developing its growth strategy to tap
the potential of the Indian and Asian markets. Atash would become a platform for building a leading, technology-led,
people-driven seed company with a vision of "Seeding Growth". Atash aims to become a key player in the USD 1.3 bn
Indian Seed Industry.
