Insecticides (India) Ltd MD Rajesh Aggarwal said the current fiscal started on a 'negative note' with delay in sowing season as monsoon got delayed by 15-20 days.

Rainfall deficit further aggravated the decline in demand for agrochemicals. Despite subdued domestic environment, the company was able to deliver a resilient performance with growth in revenues and maintain profitability margins due to strong product portfolio and greater market acceptability of products among farmers, he added.

Shares of the company rose 0.33 per cent to settle at Rs 653.70 apiece on the BSE.
