CropLife America Meets with Delegation from Chinese Ministry of Agriculture

A delegation of pesticide program officers organized by the Institute for the Management of Agrochemicals, China Ministry of Agriculture, met with senior leaders from CropLife America (CLA) to learn more about the regulation of pesticides in the U.S. Led by Deputy Director-General Yan Duanxiang, the fifteen officers sought to learn about pesticide registration, sale and marketing, and risk assessment to better inform regulations, reevaluation and policy-making in China. The Center for Sustainable Development and Policy (CSDP) at the University of California, Davis, is hosting the group as part of its mission to promote dialogue and educational programs that build capacity for sustainable development and effective government.

Jay Vroom, president and CEO, CropLife America

“We are pleased to meet with Chinese agricultural officers and share information on the regulation of crop protection products in the U.S.,” stated Jay Vroom, president and CEO of CLA. “Our nation has one of the most advanced food systems in the world, built upon a solid pesticide regulatory system that uses the best available science and is based on the sound principles of risk assessment. Farmers around the globe rely on crop protection technology to grow nutritious and affordable food, making it vital for our industry to continue to advance these products and meet farmers’ needs.”

Dr. Janet E. Collins, executive vice president of science and regulatory affairs at CLA, added, “The crop protection industry in the U.S. is constantly striving to develop products that more precisely target crop threats. We are always pleased to meet and speak with groups both from around the U.S. and from different countries to inform the innovation of crop protection technology.”

The mandate of the Institute for the Management of Agrochemicals (also translated as the Institute for the Control of Agrochemicals) includes pesticide/agrochemical registration, quality testing, biological monitoring/evaluation, residue analysis, marketing regulation as well as information dissemination and public outreach.
