Siri Agri Group is an 100% Agro based company and consists a team of Scientists, Biologists , horticulturists and farmers with 40 + years of experience in Sandalwood cell biology. We intend to do collective farming of Indian Sandalwood (Santalum album)in huge volumes. Agriculture is our teams passion and Sandalwood is our area of expertise.

When farming is done in an collective manner and in huge volumes the cost incurred to involve latest technology, equipments and expertise comes down.This is what Australia has been doing and is now supplying Indian Sandalwood to India.

Australia is doing farming of Indian Sandalwood involving Indian Scientists ( Dr.H S Anantha Padmanabha & Team) and selling it back to India which is a very alarming scenario. India has the best suitable environment to grow Indian Sandalwood. Until now we were hand-bound as Indian law did not allow individuals to grow Sandalwood however with the amendment of this law we as a company intend to do Sandalwood farming. Dr.H S Anantha Padmanabha the same scientist who has successfully done this plantation in many countries including Australia and in over 35,000 acres of land is now the Chief Executive Scientist (CES) of Siri Agri Group.As a company Siri Agri Group can independently do Sandalwood farming however only upto an limited extent. As mentioned earlier, to bring down the cost and to do an optimum utilization of this rich resource found within India we as a company have to do it in large volumes and the best way to do this is by involving individuals as a team and increasing the area of cultivation.

It takes time, money and expertise to do Sandalwood farming. We intend to contribute time & expertise and invite individuals who have the passion for farming to invest as per their financial capacity. The rich yield from Sandalwood to be shared on 50:50 ratio thus justifying both the investors & the experts.
