We at NatureNerve strive to bring a smile to the farmer's face by respecting what the land can provide. From delivering sustainability to providing consultancy, what ever the need we make sure that the customer always comes first. Its not only a product that we market to our client, its a complete service. Our clients can always reach us and take advice from our on call experts. We strive to understand the need of our clients and bring to them custom made products and services, since at NatureNerve we understand that every patch of green is unique.

Our dedicated team works round the clock to ensure complete satisfaction and peace of mind. Selling our range of sustainable aquaculture supplements or agriculture fertilizers is simply the tip of the ice-berg. We go the extra mile to assist them to get the best quality of seeds, and if they ask we can also arrange for their harvests to get picked up, and for no extra cost.

The products and services are a result of long ongoing years of dedication and research in the coastal regions of the Sundarbans and the green agricultural belts of the Punjab. With community development and establishment through our services we connect with the heart of sustainability.  

We constantly strive to provide economic protection to the coastal population of India. Such coastal communities are at the fringes of society and hence intimately associated with native ecological services. Nearly 3/4th of the population of the Indian Sundarbans is dependent on fish farming, so with proper management we continue to provide a sustainable support system.

Continuous and exhaustive field trials guarantee our client base the satisfaction of meeting their targets. We feel the pulsating nerve of Mother Nature herself! At NatureNerve, we dance to the rhythm of the earth. From the laboratory and the fields we bring to you agricultural technology that is easy to grasp and a flair to flourish in.

 

 

The Team

 

Deepta Chakravartty, Founder & Chief Executive

A bio-technologist, graduated from the University of Glasgow in Medical Genetics. Deepta developed a keen interest in the relationship of the environment and nutrition with the genetic machinery. This inspired him to return to India and conduct extensive research in aquaculture nutrition in the Sundarbans to investigate the benefits in Indian agriculture. The work also involves  development through aquaculture as a fundamental source of livelihood for the coastal communities of our country who dwell in the fringes of society. His interests also revolve around Indian biodiversity and recognizing the need to protect and celebrate our ecosystem.
