Mr Santosh Nair, CEO, Camson Bio Technologies

To adapt to these challenges of tomorrow, innovation plays a key role in helping farmers grow yields sustainably and conserve natural resources.

Bangalore-based Camson BioTechnologies is aiming to fulfil this need by offering hybrid seeds, bio-fertilizers, and biocides that are non-poisonous, eco-friendly, and residue-free to the farming community. 

Mr Santosh Nair, the CEO of the company, in an exclusive interview shares his company's plans with BioSpectrum.

Edited excerpts:

Q: Why Camson is planning to demerge its seeds business in to a separate company?
Mr Santosh Nair: This move will allow Camson to focus on its smaller but faster growing bio pesticide business. This would de-risk the business model, leading to a better valuation of the firm and would also be beneficial from a regulatory angle.
We would be naming our seeds business as Camson Seeds and bio-pesticide business as Camson Biotechnologies.
