India has recently identified the pomegranate market in Australia. Argentine mango and basmati rice too; Carrot seeds in Iran; In Uzbekistan, there are markets for wheat flour, basmati rice, mango, banana and soybean oil cakes, Bhutanese tomatoes, oats and onions, and Serbian oranges.
The Ministry of Commerce said in a statement that the problem of pesticide residue contamination has affected the export of basmati rice to the EU, as strict regulations have been imposed by the EU for chemicals such as tricycloazol and buprofizin. In India, they are widely used in paddy cultivation. Export Inspection Council (EC) examinations have been made mandatory for basmati exports in the European Union, which has reduced the precautionary measures against export products. As a result, Punjab banned the sale of nine chemicals, including tricycloazole and buprofizin, during the kharif season in 2000, the statement said.
