China’s Henan province enters top three pesticide manufacturing regions

China’s 3.7 million tonnes of agrochemical output in 2014 came primarily from three provinces: Jiangsu with some 998,100 tonnes, Shandong (almost 985,700 tonnes) and Henan (nearly 305,500 tonnes). That represents a shift in the country’s traditional manufacturing triumvirate of Jiangsu, Shandong and Zhejiang, with central Henan province ousting the coastal province of Zhejiang to reach the third spot. The figures come from the National Bureau of Statistics, and are reported by Chinese media. Henan produced 40,125 tonnes of agrochemicals in December alone, the third-highest nationwide, again behind Shandong (87,441 tonnes) and Jiangsu (94,874 tonnes). Zhejiang’s output in 2013 reached 234,121 tonnes. It is likely that the northern province of Shandong will become China’s leading manufacturer of agrochemicals in 2015, with the province producing more agrochemicals than any other province in July of last year.
