Feb. 10, 2021
AgroPages will continue to release market reports of popular pesticide technicals to help overseas buyers understand the supply pattern and development trends, so to effectively make sourcing strategies.
Main Target Crop： Paddy rice field
Cyhalofop-butyl is the only aryloxy phenoxy propionate(APP) herbicide that has high safety to paddy fields. It has a wide control spectrum, with special effects on sprangletop, barnyard grass, and effective to more than 30 kinds of grass weeds. It can also control weeds that are resistant toquinclorac, sulfonylurea and amide herbicides.
As an excellent herbicide for the control of weeds in paddy fields, the peak demand for cyhalofop-butyl techincal in Chinese market is 4,000 tons, and is currently stable at 2,500-3,000 tons. The Chinese market for cyhalofop-butyl is fiercely competitive.
However, the international market demand for cyhalofop-butyl stays only 600-700 tons. The application of this herbicide in some major rice-growing countries overseas has not been valued much. For example, India has the world's largest rice planting area, but there is no cyhalofop-butyl technical registration held by India companies, with very few participants.
Cyhalofop-butyl market in other major rice-growing countries of Southeast Asia is also not as hot as in China. With the release of production capacity of cyhalofop-butyl in China, how many market opportunities exist in overseas’paddy fields market in the future？
