A new product - CAMBIUM (a herbicide) has been launched in the market which caters to the Soya Bean crop.
There was a decline in Exports when compared to the corresponding period of last year. The key reasons for the decline in business is unfavourable season and input material shortage. However, the outlook for the coming quarters looks positive.
