Attributing the US economic distress to the Iraq war, Chellappa said, “The war ate into the vitals of the US economy”. Advising the country’s farmers against using chemical fertilisers and pesticides in crops, the secretary said that western countries were “allergic” to the presence of these chemicals. “The food produces that contain these chemical residues are summarily rejected,” he said adding chillies and mangoes from Andhra Pradesh had become victims of such a rejection.
