"We are pleased that the Supreme Court of Queensland in Australia has dismissed a class action litigation against Advanta Seeds Pty Ltd, Company’s subsidiary in Australia.

Brokerage firm ICICIdirect has a buy UPL in range of Rs 625-635 with target at Rs 735 with stop loss at Rs 570. "Chemical stocks have been one of the best performers in the last one year but UPL has been an underperformer.
