Ningxia Dadi ups abamectin production
Chinese agrochemical company Ningxia Dadi Fengzhiyuan Biology (Yinchuan) has begun a project to expand and improve its production facility for the insecticide, abamectin. The project is expected to be completed in July, by which time the company's abamectin capacity will have reached 120 tonnes/year. The increased capacity will realise annual profits of some Yuan 30 million ($4.4 million), the company predicts. Abamectin is one of the “more ideal” insecticide products currently available, and the project will “improve the framework” of the regional pesticide industry, the city's municipal government reports.
