This year we are cascading our Mission, Vision, Values and Code of Business Principles within the company as we believe that Values constitute the foundation for integrating key business requirements within a result oriented frame work and that create basis for action and feedback. Values are about what is important to us in certain contexts, something we feel for, believe in and something we want to live by. We are ensuring that everybody in the organization should have a clear picture of what our value mean in practice – “What does it mean to me?” and “What should I do more and What should I stop doing” The objective is that everyone in Agastya through thought and action convert the values to behavioural actions in day to day working.

We have a clear vision for Agastya and strategies are set out. We achieve & surpass the business plan & objectives through partnering with our valued customers, farmers, distributors, dealers, retailers to realize success and generating their Trust & Confidence in Agastya and demonstrating and translating our values in to actions: to be good corporate citizen, to achieve ambitious goals, to be innovative, to decide and act, to appreciate & encourage team work and to recognize results. We all do this by being a “Good human being” amongst other things and abiding by the rule of the land and by adhering to the principle of “Responsible Care” to safety, health & environment.
