Pesticide-integrated fertilizer market to be regulated
Nowadays the pesticide-integrated fertilizer market demand in China is growing, especially the demand for pest control and insecticidal fertilizer, which is however not readily available in the market at present time in respect of both varieties and quantities. There is a great potential market. There is an issue of compatibility and the issue of lasting effect existing with the pesticide-integrated fertilizer, for which the slow-release technology is an important solution. However, at present time Chinese enterprises suffer restrictions of production and formula development of pesticide-integrated fertilizer. Furthermore a combination of pesticide and fertilizer may cause risk to public security, therefore pesticide-integrated fertilizer needs to have binding specifications and regulations. The industry urgently calls for establishment of standards to be applicable to pesticide-integrated fertilizer.
World Potato Congress held in Beijing
From the 28th to the 30th July, the World Potato Congress was held in Beijing, participated by a large number of multinationals including Syngenta, Bayer and DuPont, where potato solutions were released. Early this year, the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture initiated the “potato to be staple food” program in a purpose to promote potato into the 4th staple food following wheat, corn and rice. At present time China’s potato planting area ranks on the top list, but the level of pesticide application falls behind, offering great market opportunities for potato-oriented pesticide. During the conference, the International Potato Center Asia Pacific Center was unveiled, which will consolidate international resources and set up an international potato crop research center in China.
Sino-Agri United Biotechnology becoming a pesticide creating enterprise
The fluoride ether bacteria amide technical 98% and other 2 formulation products developed by Shandong Sino-Agri United Biotechnology obtained the temporary registration of ICAMA on 30th July. The product is a novel fluoride ether bacteria amide fungicide created by Shandong United Pesticide Industry Ltd in cooperation with Shandong Agricultural University in 2010, which is a broad-spectrum and high-efficient fungicide, acting on the respiratory chain of fungi mitochondrial to restrain the succinodehydrogenase activity, thus to cut off electron transfer and restrain the fungi growth. The successful development of fluoride ether bacteria amide enables Sino-Agri United Biotechnology to become a pesticide creating enterprise and enables China to step into the leading countries of novel insecticide creation and production.
