Dhanuka Agritech Managing Director M K Dhanuka said, "The company's slow growth in sales and profits may be attributed to uneven distribution rainfall."

Decline in EBITDA may be attributed to low growth in topline and change in product mix, he said.

However, the company's sales has picked up very well from first week of July at the start of monsoon. "Our expectations for coming quarter are high considering good monsoon and our strong and superior products backed by several marketing and branding initiatives," he said in a separate statement.

The Delhi-based company's shares were trading 3.59 per cent lower at Rs 568.30 apiece in the afternoon trade on the BSE today.
