11129731480?profile=RESIZE_400xThe annual “State of Counterfeiting in India” report has been published for 2022 (here) by the Authentication Solutions Providers Association (ASPA).  As well as counterfeit spirits, it highlights counterfeit agrochemicals as a particular concern and estimates the incidence as 30%.  Sub-quality counterfeit agrochemicals can lead to food safety risks from unexpected pesticide residues, metabolites or excipients.  Crops grown in India, and in neighbouring countries which may import Indian agrochemicals, are exported and eaten around the world.
