Commenting on the quarterly results, Simon-Thorsten Wiebusch, Executive Director, Bayer CropScience Limited said, ″In Q1 of FY2023-24 despite the impact of delayed monsoon we continued to see strong growth in Sales and liquidation of our Crop Protection portfolio. As expected, we witnessed Roundup™ price normalization impacting the overall Sales growth of the quarter. Corn seeds continue to yield strong results with volume growth driven by portfolio and better acreages in Kharif.″
