China's H1 import values up on lower volumes

China's imported pesticides were worth $290 millionin the first half of this year, an increase of 6% on the same period last year, reports the Chinese Crop Protection Association (CCPIA). Volumes, however, were down by 2.7% to 31,000 tonnes. The volume figure was equivalent to just 2.2% of China's pesticide production during the period. The only product category to see growth during the period was fungicides, for which volumes increased by 25.9% to 11,000 tonnes, and values were up by 34% to $110 million. The largest category, herbicides, saw declines in both volume and value, of 24.9% to 12,000 tonnes, and 7% to $80 million, respectively. Insecticide imports also declined in both volume and value terms, with volumes dropping 23.8% to 4,000 tonnes, and values sliding 15.1% to $70 million.
