Why Mancozeb and Acephate?

The Indian Government proposed to ban 27 pesticides, shocking the agrochemical industry. According to statistic from the Ministry of Chemical Industry, India's production of Mancozeb and Acephate were 82,000 and 19,000 tons per year, respectively, with the two ranking first and second in terms of exported value of agrochemicals.
This issue has gained considerable attention this week. According to some, the US and Canada are concerned about the issue, while others have commented that it is good outcome, as a part of overall production will return to China. After collecting 29 surveys within the same day, nine of the participants were European and North American traders or distributors, and it is interesting to see their views on Mancozeb.
The complete article about Mancozeb is coming soon in the "Latin America Focus" magazine. 

China's total export of Mancozeb was valued at US$99 million, $96 million and $81 million in 2017, 2018 and 2019, respectively, with export figures dropping during those years.
Countries, such as Indonesia, Brazil, Egypt, Nigeria, Ecuador, Bangladesh and South Africa, have sharply decreased their imports from China, most notably South Africa, whose imports from China dropped from $4.9 million to $246,700, after signing a major big trade deal with India.
- Vietnam, Tanzania and the Philippines maintained their import levels from China.
- India increased the number of markets it supplies, to include Costa Rica, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, South Africa, Tanzania, Nigeria, Egypt and Kenya.
