Aside from UPL's  background, they also shared their brands /  product lines and what is in the pipeline, helping farmers, and a question and answer portion after.

Here in the Philippines, UPL has been around for 5 years, starting August 2012.

Price Advantage
They do not believe in "cheap" price, but rather in reasonably priced, in order to maintain good quality.

Availability
UPL is present in 128 countries. Here in the Philippines, UPL products are available in agricultural supply stores and authorized distributors like Jardine.

Manufacturing Plants
UPL products are not all made in India, because they have manufacturing facilities around the world.

I asked a rather silly question: Since pesticide is a poison, can expired poison still be able to poison? I was answered that even though the potency might have degraded, but still, it is still poisonous.
