India is focused on adopting new technologies that address the environmental challenges currently facing the agriculture sector. India has substantial room for collaborative economic development within the agricultural sector and Clean Seed is firmly rooted in its commitment to contribute to the advancement of the sector. I would like to thank our team for its tireless efforts both on the ground in India and here at home to bring MINI-MAX™ to India for 2023.″
