CHANDIGARH: In a significant decision, the Haryana Government has decided to allow the sale of bio products of only those companies which had got their products tested from CCS Haryana Agricultural University (HAU), Hisar, Director Agriculture, Rajesh Khullar, said here on Sunday. He said that earlier there was no restriction on the manufacture, stocking and sale of bio fertilizers in the State.

However, 31 companies were permitted to sell their bio-products other than bio fertilisers and organic fertilizers on the basis of test reports of Government-approved test houses.

To streamline the entire process of granting permission to only competent and efficient companies producing quality products, the State Govt had constituted a committee under the chairpersonship of Financial Commissioner and Principal Secretary, Agriculture to review the earlier decision.
