BEIJING--(Marketwire - April 8, 2008) - Agria Corporation (NYSE: GRO) (the "Company" or "Agria"), an innovative China-based agri-solutions provider, today confirmed that there have been no disruptions to its business due to Zhixin (Frank) Xue's recent resignation from his COO and director positions at Agria. In addition, the Special Committee of the Board of Directors of Agria continues its work on this matter. Mr. Xue and other members of management team of Primalights III Agriculture Development, Co., Ltd. ("P3A"), Agria's primary operating entity in China, are continuing to work at P3A.

The Company has been informed by its PRC counsel that the Power of Attorney, Exclusive Call Option Agreement, Exclusive Technology Development, Technical Support and Service Agreement, Exclusive Consultancy Service Agreement, Proprietary Technology License Agreement and Letter of Undertaking entered into between Agria's wholly-owned subsidiary in China and P3A and/or its direct equity owners, as applicable, are valid, binding and enforceable under PRC law in accordance with their terms. In addition, P3A is permitted to conduct its business within the scope and terms specified in the licenses and permits granted to it. The Company has been advised by its PRC counsel that the PRC counsel has no reason to believe that any regulatory body would consider modifying, suspending or revoking such licenses and permits solely because of any P3A employee's resignation. Based on the PRC counsel's advice, the Company believes that no employee at P3A has any legal right to take P3A's licenses and permits with him or her in the event such employee resigns from P3A.
