China’s eight-month agchem output up 2%

China produced 2.4 million tonnes of agrochemicals in the first eight months of 2014, an increase of 2% on the same period last year. Growth in China’s agrochemical manufacturing sector had gradually stalled in the first half, with six-month output up just 0.7% on 2013 (Agrow No 693, p 25), but pesticide production in August alone this year rallied, increasing 11.6% year-on-year to 298,000 tonnes. The August data are based on 365 manufacturers “of a certain scale” collected by the National Bureau of Statistics and reported by the China Crop Protection Industry Association.
