Five companies were issued with approvals, three of which were given the go ahead to produce pesticide technical material: Henan Yale Biotech, for a 100 tonnes/year facility for the insecticide, matrine (5% mother liquid); Shanghai DuPont Agrochemical, for a 800 tonnes/year facility for the insecticide, chlorantraniliprole (95.3%); and Heilongjiang Deqiang Bio for a 100 tonnes/year plant for the manufacture of ningnan toxin (40%). The other two companies were granted permission to produce pesticide formulations. The MIIT released seven such lists last year.
