Chinese nine-month agchem imports up 4%

China imported 35,972 tonnes of agrochemicals in the first nine months of 2009, an increase of 3.8% on the corresponding period of the previous year. The figures come from China's general administration of customs and were published by the China Securities Journal. China imported 3,286 tonnes of pesticides in September this year, an increase of 29% over the previous month. However the figures from January to August show a year-on-year drop of 0.6%. In value terms, nine-month imports were worth some $277.6 million, an increase of 19% on last year. Analysts at the journal state that the increase in imports in September can be attributed to autumn being the high season for pesticide usage. Figures for October are unlikely to present further monthly growth, they predict.
