We view Serbia as a very promising market for the sale of our crop protection products. As with other European markets in which we have created a strong presence, we believe that the Serbian agro sector will respond favorably to MAI's broad portfolio of quality products and top-quality service, as well as our on-the-ground sales teams that provides farmers with the solutions they require to overcome their crop protection challenges."
