In the first quarter we have successfully entered Uttar Pradesh and its benefit are reflecting in this quarter but the major impact can be seen in the results of next quarter. Uttar Pradesh has vast potential for expansion and we will further strengthen our presence in Uttar Pradesh. Monsoon is good this year, which has benefited Agro-chemical companies in this season, and the benefits of good monsoon will also be available in the Ravi season. Government's efforts to double the farmer's income and increase in MSP and the debt waiver of farmers in many states is also positive for Agro Chemicals companies. We have launched our R & D high-demand high-margin products, which are getting very good feedback, which has resulted in continuous improvement in our margins. We are going to launch 3-4 products in our R & D market every year, which can improve our margins further. The company is gradually moving ahead with new plans to enter new states, which can give the company an increase in sales with geographical benefits. Our intent is to become a pan India player with significant product mix. We also want to increase our distributor network from 2100 to atleast 4000 by 2020."
