China issues more agchem production approvals

China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) has issued the fourth batch of pesticide production approval certificates for 2013. It contains 360 approvals, usually valid for two years. Of those, 87 are for companies registered in China's eastern Jiangsu province. The MIIT has already issued 734 permits in the previous three batches to be released so far this year (Agrow No 664, p 22). The majority of the approvals are for pesticide processing or mixing of agrochemical compounds. Ten companies were granted authorisations for the manufacture of active ingredients. They include: Yancheng Limin Chemical, for the fungicide, azoxystrobin (96%), the insecticide, indoxacarb (95%), and the antifeedant, pymetrozine (96%); DuPont Agricultural Chemicals (Shanghai), for the herbicide, sulfometuron-methyl (95%); and Jiangsu Weier Chemical, for the herbicide, haloxyfop-P-methyl (98%).
