The pesticide industry needs healthy, stable and sustainable development
On May 27th, the third council of the ninth session of the China Pesticide Industry Association was held in Xiamen, Fujian Province. More than 200 representatives from more than 180 member units in the pesticide industry attended the meeting.
At the meeting, Sun Shubao, President of China Pesticide Industry Association, made a report on the work of the third council of the ninth session to the participating governing units. In the report, Sun Shubao introduced the work of the association in 2013, analyzed the situation and tasks faced by the pesticide industry, and made arrangements for the key work of the association in 2014. When reviewing 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 all the established goals and gave full play to the association's role in the pesticide industry and The role of bridge in social development. He introduced that in 2013, my country's pesticide industry has achieved remarkable results in structural adjustment. The output has grown steadily and the benefits have greatly improved the industry's main business income and profit. The industry's main business income and profit have reached a record high. Compared with other petrochemical industries, the profit growth against the trend has shown a "single-handed" trend. However, the problems existing in the industry should not be underestimated. The problem of overcapacity needs to be curbed and the environmental protection problem is still prominent. This is an unfavorable factor restricting the development of the industry and needs to be overcome by enterprises, industries and associations.
Regarding the issue of glyphosate environmental protection verification that is generally concerned in the industry, Sun Shubao said: "As the first product verification in the pesticide industry to carry out environmental verification, the verification work is quite complicated, but the environmental protection requirements will not be relaxed. Only companies that truly meet the requirements can pass the environmental verification. .The first batch of companies that have passed the environmental protection verification is expected to announce to the public and make an announcement in the near future."
When deploying and planning the work of the association in 2014, Sun Shubao pointed out that the association will carry out work under the new policy environment to further enhance the awareness of opportunities and urgency. Innovation-driven is an important support, taking advantage of the trend, and focusing on improving the development environment of the industry, accelerating industrial adjustment, mergers and reorganizations, realizing transformation and upgrading, and guiding the pesticide industry to comply with macroeconomic policies to promote the industry's leap to the mid-to-high end of the value chain and promote the healthy, stable and sustainable development of the pesticide industry.
At the meeting, Ye Jiming, deputy director of the Pesticide Inspection Institute of the Ministry of Agriculture, was invited to elaborate on the new problems and challenges faced by my country's pesticide industry in the new era. He pointed out that the first is the increase of environmental pressure. The recent introduction of the "strictest in history" 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 to support agriculture. The frequent introduction of agricultural policies is also a good signal for the pesticide industry; third, the government's supervision of the pesticide industry is constantly increasing. Taking the limit of harmful solvents in EC as an example, it can be seen that the industry needs further regulation to develop healthily; fourth, In recent years, a large number of new products imported by foreign companies have caused certain pressure on my country's pesticide market; fifth, transformation and upgrading is the only way for enterprises to achieve transformation and upgrading under today's social development pattern. Only enterprises can achieve sustainable development.
Ye Jiming said that the industry needs to pay attention to the safety of neonicotinoid pesticides to bees, the toxicity of methoxyacrylate pesticides to fish, shrimp and other aquatic organisms, and the safety of bisamide pesticides to water lice, etc. toxicity and safety of sulfonylurea herbicides.
In addition, He Yuanbo, President of Bayer CropScience Greater China, introduced to the delegates how Bayer seized the opportunity of the Chinese government's agricultural policies to bring substantial benefits to enterprises and to contribute to the improvement of farmers and the entire industry.
He said that from 2012 to 2020, China's pesticide market is expected to grow by 8% per year. With the increasing demand of agricultural operators for higher production efficiency, more low-toxicity, high-efficiency and environment-friendly pesticide products will be put into use. The market value-added potential cannot be underestimated.
In addition, Li Chonghua, Secretary-General of China Pesticide Industry Association, also introduced some pesticide varieties currently independently developed and innovated in my country, such as tetrachlortraniliprole, fenflufen, cyclofenapyr and chlorfluthrin. She pointed out that my country's independent R&D and innovation capabilities are constantly improving and should work harder on this road to transform from a big country in pesticides to a strong country in pesticides as soon as possible.
[Introduction · China Pesticide and Fertilizer Network] At present, my country's pesticide companies are facing the influx of international pesticide giants and the fierce competition in the domestic market. It has become an urgent problem for the majority of pesticide companies. Agriculture is a strategic industry that secures the world and stabilizes the hearts of the people. Without the modernization of agriculture, there will be no modernization of the country. At present, my country's pesticide companies are faced with the influx of international pesticide giants and the fierce competition in the domestic market. Especially in recent years, a series of drug-related agricultural products incidents have made the public "talk about drugs."
When people eat vegetables, they are most worried about the pollution of pesticide residues. Generally speaking, vegetables that are fragile and easy to attract insects will use more pesticides; while some vegetables are "strong" or have an excellent growth environment, and they can grow healthily without the protection of too many pesticides. So, which dishes can "get out of the silt without being stained"?
Modern agriculture developed with the development of pesticides and fertilizers. As people pay more and more attention to their health, pesticide residues on fruits and vegetables have become more and more worrying. In fact, "pesticide" is a very broad concept. Some people regard all agricultural substances other than fertilizers as "pesticides", while others only call "chemically synthesized" drugs used for insecticide and sterilization as "pesticides".
[Introduction · China Pesticide and Fertilizer Network] The industry needs to pay attention to the safety of neonicotinoid pesticides to bees, the toxicity of methoxyacrylate pesticides to fish, shrimp and other aquatic organisms, and the toxicity of bisamide pesticides to water lice, etc. And the safety of sulfonylurea herbicides. my country's independent R&D and innovation capabilities are constantly improving, and we should work harder on this road to transform from a big country in pesticides to a strong country in pesticides as soon as possible.
[Introduction · China Pesticide and Fertilizer Network] It was learned at the Fourth Council of the Ninth China Pesticide Industry Association that the poor export tax rebate of technical materials and preparations has affected the enthusiasm of pesticide companies to extend to the high-end industrial chain. After the original drug of the same price, it is reprocessed into preparations and sold back to China to compete with Chinese preparation companies. As a result, on the one hand, the competition in the domestic market has been intensified, and on the other hand, the profit margins of domestic preparation companies have been squeezed.
