Editor Notes

Chinese agrochemical companies issued semi-annual reports one after another this July as usual. And one of the lightspots in these semi-annual reports is that almost all glyphosate manufacturers in China were benefited from the rebound of glyphosate market in H1 2012. Driven by the market recovery, in fact, the whole herbicide industry has witnessed a warm situation that manufacture and consumption have increased to some extent.

It’s observed that the government’s efforts in reformation of Chinese pesticide industry has taken effect and will continue. Meanwhile, in terms of herbicide manufacturers in China, the government’s stricter regulation will probably oppress them in a short term but will benefit the industrial integration in the long run. In other words, those who survive in the market will be stronger and promising.

After maintenance and check during July and Aug., the peak season for Chinese herbicide market comes quietly. The price level of various herbicides in China will meet uptrend with the expected explosive demand in the near future.
