    1. Thank you for reading. Farmer is not selling. Since it is a poison, manager gives small amount of concentrate to sprayer. A little bit, the manage keeps aside for selling.


    1. Pesticides can kill. These days pesticides are becoming more powerful because bugs are becoming resistant. People commit suicide drinking pesticide. Thank you for reading.
