Sales of Fluralaner (active ingredients for veterinary pharmaceuticals) declined due to inventory adjustments, however it was above the initial outlook. Sales of domestic agrochemicals were strong due to sales of insecticide "GRACIA" (fluxametamide) launched in May in Japan. Sales of ROUNDUP (glyphosate) increased from the previous year, which was affected by natural disasters and other factors. Sales of overseas agrochemicals decreased due to lower sales of herbicide "TARGA" and "PERMIT".
