Research

The third generation of agricultural entrepreneurs at Kilaru Naturals presents a refreshing take on research. While crop cultivation tends to become all about food security, no questions are being asked about the nutritional benefits of the grains and cereals going around today. Kilaru Naturals is the first firm to identify and take up the case for 'nutrition' as not much work has been done in this area. Therefore, identifying food-crops full of rare nutrients presents a huge research opportunity for Kilaru Naturals and it may be time to reach new frontiers as far as complete nourishment for the human body is concerned.

Ideation:
Back at our Singapore office, we had a momentous discussion: where is the greatness in continuing to grow crops that fail to provide comprehensive nutrition? Countless pure-plant sources of rich nutrition thrive in the wilderness, unknown to mankind. Insufficient research has kept us from enjoying the various health benefits that these yet unidentified plants & herbs may provide. Moreover, nutrition that promises to come from plants would click with meat-eaters, vegetarians and vegans alike. With this thought, Kilaru Naturals found itself at the center of revolutionary research. We are the first name in the industry to pinpoint the huge nutrition emergency the world faces today. In order to tackle this very challenge, identifying protein-rich crops, cereals and grains has become the focus of Kilaru Naturals.

Ground work:
The agriculture hub that is India is home to as many as 127 different agro-climatic zones. That is to say we had before us more than a hundred unique types of natural conditions suitable for crop cultivation! Our very own research wing at Kilaru Naturals, over the last few years, conducted crop-adaptation trials across India. This exhaustive analysis of crop behaviour helped us identify which crops are happiest to grow in each of these zones. The resulting insight allowed us to successfully add 4 new crops to the Indian plant population. A huge achievement as it is, KNPL continues on its mission of releasing new strains of crop to enrich the plant biodiversity and finding more exciting food-crops to grow. Our research team has developed excellent package of practices to cultivate these superfoods here, better than they would naturally thrive on native land. Kilaru Naturals' research objectives include:
