Most top 20 companies ahead in 2014
Nearly all of the leading agrochemical companies posted sales gains last year, but only Monsanto and Nanjing Redsun recorded double-digit increases in dollar terms. That compared with a stronger performance in 2013 when all of the top 20 firms saw growth and half posted double-digit dollar gains. The top six multinationals recorded sales gains for the fourth consecutive year in 2014. The 20 leading players were unchanged from the 2013 ranking, with only two positions swapped among the top 15 and some shuffling of places in the bottom quarter of the table.
