Fungicides Dominate China Crop Protection Contribution Awards

The 2016 China Crop Protection Contribution Award & Promotion Award was unveiled recently. Some 104 products have won awards, including 50 fungicides, 18 insecticides, 19 herbicides, seven plant regulators, one pesticide-fertilizer combined product, and nine farm machines. The evaluation criteria for the Crop Protection Contribution Award was based on the results of product promotion and application. The trophies given to the award-winning product include highly-efficient, low-toxic pesticide and spraying machines, as well as biological and physical technology, and measures.

Among the award-winning product varieties, fungicide had an absolute advantage and accounted for 50% of the total award-winning products. In the recent years, the use of fungicide has increased intensively, mainly for the following three reasons:

  1. Fruit tree, vegetable and protected vegetable cultivation have increased year by year. There is increased occurrences of a variety of diseases on these crops, which results in the increased use of fungicide.
  2. Staple crops, especially food crops, have suffered aggravated diseases owing to the weak disease resistance of crops planted over the last two years.
  3. The demand to keep fruits fresh in storage and industrial mold proof application has increased.

Among all the fungicides, the rise of pyraclostrobin has become a focus of attention, where the sales of several 10 million-Yuan worth of products ranked among the top with huge market potentials.

Of the numerous herbicides, glufosinate has become a hot seller, with six products winning the award, which accounted for 32% of the herbicide variety, mainly owing to China’s prohibition of paraquat AS and the emergence of glyphosate-resistant super weed.

Concerning insecticide, due to the continued market shrinkage and increased difficulty in product development, the old-generation insecticides represented by emamectin benzoate, high chlorine and imidacloprid have been improved and upgraded, which is now being accepted in the market again.
