In the past, the trials were planted on the farms of producers willing to avail land for cultivation. Various factors compelled the work group to move the trials to Asearch Agri-Tech. This year, nine chemical and biological companies, and three fertiliser companies participated in the trials. Participants and role-players are eagerly awaiting the reliable, accurate results that will be published in CHIPS at a later stage.
