Environment Sensitive Products
Aries has introduced for the first time in India, a range of 4 biodegradable chelates which ensure residue free crops within 15 days from application. We have also introduced 5 zero chemical products which are natural amino acid based chelates, which use soya protein as a natural chelating agent. These initiatives have been extremely well received by the farming community.
With our range of single dose, dissolvable sachets we have moved beyond environmentally sensitive products, to include eco-friendly packaging for key brands. Empowering The Society With Superior Knowledge
