Keyword 1: Doing business with China
In 2019, governments from around the world tightened their regulatory policies on chemical pesticides, causing changes to the future pesticide application structure. At the same time, the landscape of China's agrochemical manufacturing industry is being reshaped. Product supply concentration is constantly getting higher, with supply and demand reaching a new balance. In such situations, how was your business with Chinese suppliers in 2019? How do you view your future cooperation with China?
Keyword 2: Transformation of distribution channels
In an article
written by Leon Ye, we learned that Australia is experiencing considerable transformation in the distribution channels of its agri-input industry, due to the rapid developments taking place in the agribusiness market. In fact, as well as Australia, we have witnessed recent intensive global changes to distribution channels, which is becoming the general trend. In your region, do you think that something similar is happening? You are welcome to leave your comment.
Keyword 3: Opportunities and challenges in biopesticide market
Although biopesticides make up less than 10% of the global crop protection market, the biopesticide market is growing at 14% to 17% annually, which is much higher than the traditional chemical sector. The growing demand from consumers for residue-free produces and the need for environmental protection have also boosted the biopesticide market. Coping with the market’s challenges, the availability of new technologies that reduce product costs, simplified application and increased efficiency have popularized these products among farmers. How do you view the current opportunities and challenges of the biopesticides industry? We are looking forward to your comments.
