BASF

Jul 29, 2000

BASF India has reported a 26% growth in first quarter earnings on a 21% growth in the sales. One of the reasons for the improved performance is the higher sales of agrochemicals in the first quarter. This however is a seasonal business and sales drop by almost 20% in the second half. (The agrochemical business contributes around 32% to the company's annual turnover.)
