Indian agchem industry sends notice to Greenpeace

Indian agrochemical industry association Crop Care Federation of India (CCFI) has sent a legal notice to environmentalist group Greenpeace India over its claims of finding pesticide residues in samples of leading Indian tea brands, reports Indian newspaper The Economic TImes. Calling the claims “fabricated” and “'pseudo-scientific”, the association has asked Greenpeace to furnish all raw data collected and analysed for this study and tender an unconditional apology within seven days, failing which a defamation case would be filed for Rs 500 million ($8.3 million). "We have sent a legal notice to Greenpeace for creating panic in the Indian consumer's mind by publishing a false report of pesticides in tea brands and discredit Indian agro products," CCFI chairman Rajju Shroff has been reportedly quoted.
