About Us


Sterling Farm Research and Services Pvt Ltd (SFRS) was established in 1987, by a group of professionals from the life science with a commitment to develop agriculture as an industry by manufacturing and marketing blended fertilizers, plant macro and micro nutrients, cocopeat blocks, cocopeat grow bags, grow cubes and other garden care products. We are one of the first companies to introduce specialty Agro products in India.

When the company initially started in 1987, our product line consisted only of Agro products like NPK Fertilizers, Organic Manure and Micronutrients products for domestic market. Then we started an in-house analytical lab facility mainly to be used for internal research and development and for the use of our own products. We started looking at the needs of the market and introduced various specialty Agro products like water soluble Macro and Micro plant nutrients, organic pest control products using natural ingredients etc. Later we developed our award-winning product Neopeat which is a soil substitute made from processed coir husk.

Neopeat gained popularity in domestic and Overseas markets and now extensively used for Mushroom cultivation, Hydroponics, Greenhouse and Tissue Culture Labs. Neopeat thus helped us to enter into the global market as a substitute for the non-eco-friendly peat which was getting banned in many countries. This helped to increase the revenue of the company. We currently exports Neopeat to countries like Kenya, UK, Hungary, Singapore, Qatar, Romania etc.
