Japan agrochemical sales down

Agrochemical sales in Japan in the first eight months of the current pesticide year (October 1st 2006 to May 31st 2007) amounted to ¥47,232 million ($2,079 million), down by 0.9% on the same period in the previous year. Volume sales fell by 7.4% to 156,733 tonnes, according to Japan Crop Protection Association (JCPA) figures reported in Japan Chemical Week. The decline reflects the ongoing trends of a lower rice area and farmers switching to low use-rate product formulations.
