Quality, innovation and eco-friendliness are a hallmark of all of Parry's divisions.

EID Parry's bio-products division came into existence as a result of its in-house R&D. Constant innovation at EID Parry has led to the development of organic and eco-friendly bio-products like Neemazal, a bio-pesticide made from an extract (azadirachtin) of neem seeds. The bio-products business started with a technical collaboration agreement with Trifolio - MGmbh, Germany, in 1992.

The company has also set up a large organic manure plant to provide integrated nutrient management solutions. A new product AbdA - an organic plant vitaliser - has been introduced in the domestic market. With this launch the company is now able to offer a total crop protection solution for rice. Efforts are on to roll out several new products to address organic crop protection and integrated pest management issues globally.
