The members of the association who worked for it including the prospective members are leading players in making bio-agriculture and bio-products a reality. At the launch of BASAI, it was quoted that, “As an association, it will not be company based but issue based.” The speaker stated that people who have ethical standards in the business must only be a part of this initiative. The members are very clear that companies should adhere to standards for ‘bio-products’ and not dupe farmers by mixing chemicals. The association shall take serious action in such cases.
