China to further restrict glyphosate approvals

China should take steps to restrict approvals for combination herbicide formulations with glyphosate content lower than 30%, according to the Ministry of Agriculture's national evaluation committee for pesticide registrations. The recommendations were made during a committee meeting in December last year. As of January 2010, Chinese companies are no longer permitted to manufacture glyphosate aqueous solutions with active ingredient content lower than 30%. However, no such restrictions exist for combination formulations that include glyphosate. The committee recommended that registration and field test applications for such formulations should no longer be accepted, and that the ai content should be changed in approved formulations. In 2009, controversial 10% glyphosate formulations were said to account for nearly 90% of the domestic Chinese glyphosate market ( Agrow No 563, p 20).
