Great Companies are born from small dreams and dedication. The story of Dhanuka is one such dream seen by the visionary - Shri RG Agarwal. The ancestral family belonged from a small town of Ratangarh in Churu district of Rajasthan. During the 1920’s the arid state had been hit by drought frequently, which made the family shift to Delhi in search for better opportunities. The family’s expertise was in cloth business and they set up their shop at Katra Nawab in Chandini Chowk, Delhi. Over the years the business flourished with commitment and the trade trusted the family’s hundi more than that of bank.

Late Shri Durga Prasad Dhanuka had three sons and Late Shri Chiranjilal Dhanuka being the eldest took the responsibility of business ahead. Shri RG Aggarwal is the eldest son of Late Shri Chiranjilal Dhanuka. An alumni of prestigious Sri Ram College of Commerce, he was not quiet convinced to take up the family business and rather wanted to explore the untrodden path. In 1968, .Shri RG Agarwal discussed his career choice of starting up a trading business in fertilizers and agrochemicals with his father, who was kind enough to help him pursue his dreams. Late Shri Chiranjilal Dhanuka asked his younger son Mr. MK Dhanuka to support his elder brother in the new venture. Starting from South India where the demands were high for fertilizers the Dhanuka brothers opened a small office at Begum Bazar in Guntur, Andhra Pradesh. The brothers worked very hard to set up distinct identity in the industry. Aspirations of Shri RG Agarwal were very high, he was not a man to settle for less he wanted to do something far beyond and bought a sick manufacturing unit Northern Minerals Pvt. Ltd. in Gurugram for chemical production under own brand name. On 8th August 1980, Late Shri Chiranjilal Dhanuka laid the foundation of Dhanuka Agritech ltd. and since then there was no looking back. During the journey of almost 4 decades in the agrochemical industry the Company has covered many milestones with consistent hard work, passion & dedication to write the success story of today’s Dhanuka Agritech Ltd. The secret of Company’s success lies in its foundation of values and traditions on which it has always traded. People and relationships are Dhanuka’s strongest pillars which aspires to flourish together through the introduction of new technology, solutions and program.
