History - As told by company founder and Director Dr.Narinder Tomar
After 25 years working for Haryana Seeds Development corporation under seed production specialization. I came to the conclusion at age 43 that the only realistic outcome was to start my own business. A new seed company seemed the natural follow on, and in 1999 Kurukshetra Seeds Private Limited was formed with the specific purpose of building the quality seed brand in India. Under the banner of Kurukshetra Seeds, I have worked with various multinational companies both nationally and internationally. Our quality seeds supply was well praised by the farmers all over India as well as internationally in Uganda and ethopia.
Kurukshetra Agri Tech seed Private limited, previously known as Kurukshetra Seed Private Limited, was established in 1999 by Dr Narinder Tomar. A well-supported and successful business from the outset, it continued to grow and prosper and in 2012 changed from Partenership firm to sole ownership seed Production Company. After the dissolution of partnership within the Kurukshetra Seeds Pvt.Ltd . I formed this fully professional and well organised company- Kurukshetra Agri Tech Private limited.
