Mr. Gundavaram Venkata Bhaskar Rao, a graduate in agricultural
science, is one of the founder Promoters of our Company. He started
the business of seed production of Public bred varieties of corn, bajra,
sunflower on his own lands in the village of Gatla Narsingapur, Karimgar
District, Andhra Pradesh.

Subsequently, on August 27, 1986, our Company, promoted by
Mr. Gundavaram Venkata Bhaskar Rao, Mrs. Gundavaram Vanaja Devi &
Mr. Rangineni Venu Manohar Rao, was incorporated as "Kaveri Seed
Company Private Limited" under theCompanies Act, having Registration

processing, packing and marketing and simultaneously set up a
processing plant in Bellary in Karnataka. In 1987, our Company set up
its marketing office at Davangere in Karnataka. In 1996, we set up
an R & D facility at Bollaram to carry on esearch and to breed new hybrids.

In 1997, our Company set up a Seed Processing Plant at Biramulguda
near Hyderabad. In the same year our Companyintroduced sunflower
hybrid seeds. In 1999, we increased our seed conditioning capacity to meet the
growing demands by setting up a large scale processing plant at Kandlakoi
near Hyderabad. In the year 2002, our Promoters entered into acomplementary
business of Bio-Products and Micro-Nutrients for which they set up a partnership
firm under the name and style of M/s. Kaveri Agriteck for manufacturing and
marketing bio-products and micro-nutrients under the brand 'Microteck'. We have

A new seed conditioning plant with Cob Dryers was set up at Gundla Pochampally
near Hyderabad in 2005 and in Eluru in Andhra Pradesh in 2006. These cob drying
facilities help in processing corn cobs collected from production fields with high moisture
levels. These facilities gave us the advantage of obtaining seeds with optimum
moisture level with prolongedshelf life and increased vigor. By the end of the FY 2006,
our Company achieved a turn over of more than Rs. 4,800 lakhs. InSeptember 2006,
the business, assets and liabilities of M/s. Kaveri Agriteck were acquired by our

sunflower, cotton,pearl millet, grain sorghum, paddy and hybrid vegetables, and also
