Anti Sprouting Agent

To ensure a steady supply of potatoes through the year, they are preserved in cold storages at two degrees centigrade for nine months at a stretch. During this time, a significant portion of starch in the potatoes turns to sugar.  Due to the increase in the sugar content, the potatoes begin sprouting within four days of being taken out of cold storage.


A potato sprout suppressant, Oorja ensures that you get fresh and nutrientrich potatoes all year round. Oorja goes a long way to ensures that the crop stays fresh during its journey from the farm to your table. Currently Rafiq Agrico is the leading company to provide services to protect potatoes after they’ve been harvested and an important partner to the potato value chain.
