Chinese rice insecticide prices to rise

Chinese plant protection departments predict that the country's mid- and late-season rice crops will be hit harder this year by plant diseases and insect pests than last year. That should increase demand for rice insecticides and lead to price rises, reports the Chinese agricultural newspaper, the AgriGoods Herald. Pesticide prices rose in the first half of 2010 on the back of increases in raw material prices ( Agrow No 596, p 20). Some 66.4 million ha of rice is expected to be affected by plant diseases and insect pests this year, an increase of 8% year-on-year.
