According to the Notice No. 1158, previously released by the Ministry of Agriculture of China on 25 Feb., 2009, China has retreated 10% glyphosate SL from domestic market since 1 Jan., 2012. So far, all forms of glyphosate 10% SL will be considered as illegal products in domestic pesticide market.

As one of the most popular herbicides in China, 10% glyphosate SL has ever accounted for 20% of the total herbicide market and over 70% of the domestic glyphosate market before 2009. Its retreat from domestic market will definitely leave a large market share for other glyphosate formulations, such as glyphosate 30% SP, glyphosate 30% SL (ammonium salt), glyphosate 41% IPA, glyphosate ammonium 50% SP, 65% SP, 74.7% SG, 75.7% SG, and 77.7% SG, etc. Other herbicides, such as paraquat and glufosinate, will also benefit from the retreat of 10% glyphosate SL.
