Chawla Fertilizers

Though Pakistan is also the manufacturer of both Nitrogenous and Phosphate fertilizer, yet its production is not sufficient to meet country's requirements. Therefore both varieties of fertilizer are also imported to make up the deficiency.

For Phosphate fertilizer, particularly Di-Ammonium phosphate (DAP), major portion is dependent on imports. Since there is no restriction on private importers to distribute this commodity through their own system, therefore their own system, therefore it is being imported by manufacturers as well as by private sector.

Annual requirement of DAP is around 1.5 million tons. Local production is about 0.6 million tons per year, which still leaves a quantity of about 0.9 million tons to be imported.

Chawla International is one of the major importers and distributors of fertilizer in Pakistan. We are importing all kinds of fertilizers i.e. DAP, Ammonium sulphate, sulphate of potash and muriate of potash, etc.

Details are as follows:

Volume of import:

Though the use of DAP is regular throughout the year, yet there are two main seasons of its use in Pakistan i.e. RABBI (winter) and KHARIF (summer). The use of this commodity is around one million tons in RABBI season which extends from September to March and around 0.5 million tons in KHARIF season which is from April to August. Imports are, therefore to be lined-up before the start of each season.

We keep close watch on national inventory, expected local production, total seasonal requirement and actual deficiency. The import is therefore arranged keeping in view the actual import requirements and the line-ups of other importers.

Generally the company's import is two to three ship-loads in a year (i.e. 70,000 to 80,000 tons), mostly in RABBI season. Since international prices continuously fluctuate, therefore the financial involvement ranges between USD 44 million and 56 million depending on prevailing CFR prices at the time of import. There is however no particular restriction or limit. The Company can go for more import if there is a need due to less local production, less by other importers or higher demand of users.

Moreover, since Chawla International has a tradition of keeping regular inventory through-out the year for its regular end users, therefore additional import can be arranged at any time during the year.

Source of interest:

There is no specific manufacturer or a specific country for import. There is however a very strong competition in the domestic market. Moreover the end user is also choosy. This situation binds the company to look for best quality and competitive prices at the specific time of import. Not only the Government of Pakistan keeps an eye on quality, particularly on nutrient contents but the user is also conscious of colour, free flowing condition, moisture contents and the granulometry of the product.

We contact the international market as and when import is planned and concludes deals keeping in view above factors

We are therefore well known or clean deals in the international market.
