It was 2009 and young Madhukar and his brother Rajendra were scouting for entrepreneurial opportunities. With their family based in Nashik, the horticulture hub of western India, and a background steeped in agriculture, building an agri-business was a natural choice for the Gavali brothers.
Om Gayatri Nursery started in 2009 to supply high quality, disease-free seedlings of various horticultural crops. For Om Gayatri Nursery, the sale of saplings wasn’t the end but a new beginning. We fortified our relationships with farmers by offering them timely advisory, field visits and training sessions to update their knowledge.
The success of the Nursery spurred us to launch Om Gayatri Farmers Producer Company in 2016. With strong knowledge of horticultural best practices and enduring relationships with farmers, the Farmers Producer Company successfully exports residue-free fresh produce globally.
With an increasing demand from farmers for authentic and fairly-priced agro-chemicals, Om Gayatri Agro Mall was started in January 2020. Besides selling the right agro-chemicals, we also offered farmers contemporary lab testing facilities for soil, water and petiole.
In line with our commitment to using the latest scientific and proven technologies, we launched Om Gayatri Bench Tech in August 2020 to provide resilient and healthy seedlings and saplings made with bench grafting technology.
With a rising population, increasing lifespans and increasing standard of living, agri-enterprises will only become more pivotal in time to come. Om Gayatri Group still has a long way to go.
