Ethiopian agchem firm to open two plants

Ethiopian pesticide manufacturer Adami Tulu Pesticide Processing (Addis Ababa) is to open two new factories to produce herbicides and mosquito nets, national newspaper Addis Fortune reports. The plants will cost some Br 26 million ($1.5 million). “We plan to initially stitch around 1 million mosquito nets … at a cost of Br 15 million [$880,000],” company subsidiary Adami Tulu general manager Samuel Halala reportedly says. Production is to start in August this year, and at capacity the factory will manufacture 3 million nets, saving the country some $14 million. The machinery has come from Chinese company Tianjin Bohai Chemicals. The second facility will be finished by December. It is to process dimethylamine salt herbicide. The machinery is also to be imported from the Chinese company. Dimethylamine is used on maize, rice, sugar cane and wheat in Ethiopia. Adami Tulu is the only pesticide manufacturer in the country, according to Fortune.
