According to CRISIL Research, despite the rapid growth in recent years and increased penetration of pesticides manufacture, India’s pesticides usage is well below global level at 0.3 kilograms per hectare compared to companies like France and Germany, where the pesticide consumption is at 3 kilograms per hectare and 4 kilograms per hectare. As a result, we believe that there is a significant scope for increase in pesticides usage, as well as the intensity of consumption of pesticides per hectare and we believe we are ideally positioned to take advantage of the need for their increased use
