Pesticide Trade Volume in China has been More than 1.2 Million Tonnes Per Year

Date: 2015-08-11

“In recent years, the pesticide trade volume in China has been more than 1.2 million tonnes per year, accounting for about half of the global total, and export destinations have nearly covered all of the global market, involving more than 180 countries and regions.

The overuse of pesticides is one of the major reasons for food safety concerns and agricultural resources non-point pollution problems in China.

There are more than 1,000 pesticide varieties in the world, and about 650 kinds have been registered in China.

Although the Chinese pesticide industry has developed quickly in the past decades and formed industrial systems including pesticide technical production, pesticide formulation processing and R&D, etc., problems for large amounts of small-scale pesticide enterprises still exist, such as the use of poor quality equipment, and an overly rapid increase of capacity and output.

The low degree of education and low environmental awareness of Chinese farm workers contribute to the poor safety of pesticide application.

The sown area of crops in China has kept increasing in the past decade on the whole (the sown area of crops in China has shown a slight upward trend, with a CAGR (’00-’14) of 0.41%) and will remain stable, rising slightly in the following years.

The target of zero growth of pesticide use in China will be challenged greatly by the rigid pesticide demand for the increasing area of sown crops and the increasingly frequent occurrence of crop pests and diseases in China. 

According to the data from the National Bureau of Statistics of China and other sources, the net profit of major grains per capita has shown an uptrend on the whole in the past decades.

With the acceleration of urbanization, rural labor transfer has been a general trend in China. And this trend has resulted in the transfer of cultivated land, thus improving the degree of land concentration.

In the past decades, the consumption volume of insecticides has decreased noticeably, while that of herbicides has increased greatly, with a CAGR of more than 10% due to rising labor costs.

Land consolidation and large-scale cultivation are the basis of several measures for the pesticide zero growth plan in China.

Green prevention and control means finding out ways for pesticide substitution, using biological, physical and ecological ways to realize a reduction of reliance on chemical pesticide, scientific and rational use of pesticide, improving the efficiency of pesticide usage, and avoiding pesticide pollution and residue of pesticide on agricultural products. 

Measures for specialized prevention and control of crop diseases and pests are one of the new crop protection methods employed in recent years.

The optimization of the structure of pesticide products is an important way to reduce pesticide consumption. Substituting low toxicity and residual pesticides for high toxicity and residual ones could greatly reduce pesticide usage.

Adopting advanced pesticide application technology, like low volume spray and electrostatic spraying, to improve spraying accuracy, reduce the drift of pesticides, and finally improve effective utilization of pesticides.
