China manufactured some 1.5 million tonnes of agrochemicals in the first five months of 2014, an increase of 2.9% on the same period last year, while manufacturing in May alone fell 9.2% year-on-year to 297,000 tonnes. The data were based on 373 manufacturers “of a certain scale” collected by the National Bureau of Statistics and reported by the China Crop Protection Industry Association. China’s four-month agrochemical output rose by 4.6% to 1.1 million tonnes (Agrow No 689, p 21). The manufacturers were split between 142 insecticide producers, 115 herbicide companies and 75 manufacturers of fungicides.
