Agsell, the marketing arm of NSW Agriculture , is hoping to alert Australian apple growers to the export potential within the Indian market. After engineering a trail shipment, Agsell is currently in the final stages of negotiation for the sale of nearly 1400 tonnes of red delicious apple, which will net growers up to A$1.5m. Pat Abraham, manager of the marketing company, explained "Apples are part of the staple diet in India so they hit the market and sold well."
