The pesticide industry needs health, stability and sustainable development
[Introduction · China Pesticide Fertilizer Network] The industry needs to pay attention to the safety of neonicotinoid pesticides to bees, the toxicity of methoxy acrylate pesticides to aquatic organisms such as fish and shrimp, and the toxicity of bisamide pesticides to leeches. And the safety of sulfonylurea herbicides. China's independent research and development and innovation capabilities are constantly strengthening and should work harder on this road to strive to transform from a large pesticide country to a pesticide power.
On May 27, the 3rd Council of the 9th China Pesticide Industry Association held more than 200 representatives from more than 180 member units of the pesticide industry in Xiamen, Fujian Province to attend the meeting.
At the meeting, Sun Shubao, president of China Pesticide Industry Association, made a report on the work of the third session of the Ninth Council to the participating directors. In the report, Sun Shubao introduced the work of the Association in 2013, analyzed the situation and tasks faced by the pesticide industry, and deployed the key work of the Association in 2014. Looking back at the work of the Association in 2013, Sun Shubao pointed out that in the past year, the Association has done a lot of work in promoting structural adjustment, strengthening scientific and technological innovation, promoting energy conservation and emission reduction, etc., and successfully completed various established goals to give full play to the association in the pesticide industry and The role of bridges in social development. He said that in 2013, China's pesticide industry adjusted its structure and achieved remarkable results. The output increased steadily. The benefits of the industry's main business income and profits reached a record high. The number and amount of domestic pesticide imports and exports both achieved growth. The trade surplus climbed strongly in the process of continuous development. The growth of profit against the trend has shown a "single-minded" situation compared to other petrochemical industries. However, the problems in the industry still cannot be ignored. The problem of overcapacity needs to contain environmental protection problems. This is an unfavorable factor that restricts the development of the industry and needs to be overcome by enterprises, industries and associations.
Regarding the environmental verification of glyphosate, which is currently of widespread concern in the industry, Sun Shubao said: "As the first pesticide verification industry, product verification work is quite complicated, but environmental protection requirements will not be relaxed. Only enterprises that truly meet the requirements can pass environmental protection verification. The first batch of enterprises that have passed environmental verification are expected to be publicized and announced to the public in the near future."
During the deployment and planning of the association's work in 2014, Sun Shubao pointed out that the association will carry out work under the new policy environment to further enhance the sense of opportunity and the sense of urgency, and strive to deepen reform and opening up as the fundamental driving force. Innovation drive is an important support for the trend and focus on improving the industry development environment Accelerating industrial adjustment and mergers and acquisitions to achieve transformation and upgrading Guide the pesticide industry to comply with macroeconomic policies to promote the industry to the high-end leap forward in the value chain to promote the healthy, stable and sustainable development of the pesticide industry.
At the meeting, Ye Jiming, deputy director of the pesticide inspection department of the Ministry of Agriculture, was invited to elaborate on the new problems and new challenges faced by China's pesticide industry in the new era. He pointed out that the first is the increase in environmental pressure. The recent "most strict" environmental protection law has undoubtedly put forward stricter requirements for the development of the pesticide industry. Second, from the perspective of national policies, agricultural subsidy funds have been increasing in recent years. The frequent introduction of agricultural policies is also a good signal for the pesticide industry; the third is that the government's supervision of the pesticide industry is increasing. Taking the limit of harmful solvents in dairy oil as an example, it can be seen that the industry needs further regulation before it can develop healthily; In recent years, the large number of new products imported by foreign companies has exerted certain pressure on China's pesticide market. The fifth is that under the current social development pattern, transformation and upgrading is the only way for enterprises to realize the transformation and upgrading of enterprises to truly achieve sustainable development.
Ye Jiming, a safety concern for the society, said that the industry needs to pay attention to the safety of neonicotinoid pesticides to bees, the toxicity of methoxy acrylate pesticides to aquatic organisms such as fish and shrimp, and the bisamide pesticides to leeches. Toxicity and safety of sulfonylurea herbicides.
In addition, He Yuanbo, the president of Bayer CropScience Greater China, introduced to the participants how Bayer can seize the Chinese government's agricultural-related policy opportunities and bring substantial benefits to the company while contributing to the improvement of farmers and the entire industry.
He said that China's pesticide market is expected to grow by 8% every year from 2012 to 2020. The demand for higher production efficiency by agricultural operators is increasing. More low-toxic, high-efficiency and environmentally-friendly pesticide products will be put into use. The market value-added potential cannot be underestimated.
In addition, Li Xianghua, secretary-general of the China Pesticide Industry Association, also introduced some pesticides such as tetrachloroclamamide, chlorpyrifos, chlorfenapyr and fenfluthrin which are currently independently researched and developed in China. She pointed out that China's independent research and development and innovation capabilities are constantly increasing and should work harder on this road to strive to transform from a large pesticide country to a pesticide power.
Experts call for pesticide export policy to tilt toward preparation
