Six measures for the healthy development of the pesticide industry
[Introduction · China Pesticide and Fertilizer Network] In June, the inventory of pesticide companies across the country increased by 69.3% month-on-month. Among them, the inventory of pesticides increased by 118.3% month-on-month, and the inventory of herbicides increased by 105.8% month-on-month. The volume and price of many technical and preparation varieties have fallen. my country's pesticide industry lacks varieties with core technologies and independent intellectual property rights, and its technological innovation capability is not strong. This is the first major bottleneck facing the development of the pesticide industry.
In the first five months of this year, the country produced a total of 1.496 million tons of original medicines, an increase of 2.9% year-on-year. Among them, fungicides increased the most, with an output of 84,000 tons, a year-on-year increase of 21.1%; insecticide output was 266,000 tons, a year-on-year increase of 6.2%; herbicide output was 693,000 tons, a year-on-year decrease of 2.5%.
According to the results of national drug situation monitoring, in June, the inventory of pesticide companies nationwide increased by 69.3% month-on-month. Among them, the inventory of pesticides increased by 118.3% month-on-month, and the inventory of herbicides increased by 105.8% month-on-month. The volume and price of many technical and preparation varieties have fallen.
From the above two sets of data, it is not difficult to see that the growth rate of the pesticide industry is gradually slowing down, the product inventory has increased significantly, and the development of the pesticide industry is facing an adjustment period.
my country's pesticide industry lacks varieties with core technologies and independent intellectual property rights, and its technological innovation capability is not strong. This is the biggest bottleneck facing the development of the pesticide industry.
The revised new "Environmental Protection Law" has increased the penalties for illegal discharge of pollutants, and environmental protection pressure will become the norm in various regions of the country in the next few years. The string of one-vote veto on environmental protection issues is getting tighter and tighter, and environmental protection issues are the second biggest bottleneck facing the development of the pesticide industry.
The state's ban on highly toxic pesticides and pesticides with risk of use is increasing year by year. The quality and safety of agricultural products is the third major bottleneck for the development of the pesticide industry.
Six major measures
In the face of the new situation that the domestic and foreign pesticide markets have been integrated, the following five measures will help my country's pesticide industry to break the bottleneck and get out of the siege.
The first is to strengthen the awareness of innovation and realize the transformation and upgrading from Made in China to Created in China. At present, China's pesticide innovation has caught up with unprecedented development opportunities. Enterprises and scientific research units should seize the opportunity and strengthen cooperation with the support of the government to achieve the goal of development and growth. Low-level imitation has been unable to keep up with the new situation of pesticide development in the world. Only through innovation-driven can the pesticide industry become bigger and stronger.
The second is to combine imitation and innovation to enhance profitability. For a long period of time, the pattern of my country's pesticide industry dominated by imitation will not change. Therefore, enterprises should pay attention to the use of expired patent varieties and increase investment in formulation and application research and development. According to statistics, in the next 5 years, with the expiration of a batch of pesticide compound patents with considerable market share by major companies such as Bayer, BASF, DuPont, Syngenta and Daunong, the market share of generic pesticides will further expand. Blindly bring it, through technological innovation, explore the appropriate process route, through imitation middle school, imitation Zhongchuang, you can win more development opportunities.
The third is to increase environmental protection efforts, turn pressure into motivation, use actions to change reality, and transmit the positive energy of the pesticide industry to the society. The glyphosate environmental inspection has pointed out a way out: only companies that are highly responsible to the society can survive. Some multinational companies have expressed that the enterprises that have passed the environmental protection verification are strong, the product quality is more reliable, and the sense of social responsibility is stronger, and they will strengthen cooperation with these enterprises in the future.
The fourth is to strengthen cooperation between Chinese and foreign enterprises to jointly develop the market. China's pesticide industry is still faced with the problems of overcapacity, low income, high pressure on environmental protection and insufficient innovation. According to statistics, the total assets and sales revenue of listed pesticide companies in my country are only comparable to those of Sumitomo and Maxim, which are ranked seventh and eighth in the world. However, there are more than 1,800 pesticide companies in China, most of which are small, scattered, chaotic, and have low innovation ability. In the future, the integration of domestic pesticide companies is an inevitable trend, and cooperation with foreign companies and going global will also be the choice of more and more domestic companies.
The fifth is to implement the brand strategy and change the status quo of the "three deficiencies". The development trend of my country's pesticide industry is basically in line with the global trend, but the speed is too slow, and it is still in the state of using low-cost labor, low-cost raw materials, and earning low profits. Experts pointed out that in the international trade of pesticides, most of our products are not sold under Chinese brands, but are sold under "OEM". my country's pesticide enterprises should change as soon as possible the "three deficiencies" status quo of lack of core technology, lack of independent intellectual property rights, and lack of world brands. In this regard, governments at all levels, industry associations at all levels, and pesticide production enterprises should work together to strengthen the research on the core and key technologies of pesticides, increase the added value of products, and change the status quo of being at the low end of the international manufacturing chain. Brand, create a famous brand, improve the international market awareness.
The sixth is to vigorously develop high-efficiency, low-toxicity, low-residue, safe and environmentally friendly pesticide formulations, especially to speed up the development of biological pesticides. The development of eco-friendly agriculture is inseparable from green prevention and control, and green prevention and control is inseparable from efficient, low-toxicity, low-residue, and environment-friendly pesticides. Therefore, it is the general trend that low-toxic pesticides will become the mainstream of the market. In 2014, the national policy will be tilted towards new pesticides with high efficiency, low toxicity and environmental protection. The Ministry of Agriculture will vigorously promote the demonstration subsidy work of low-toxicity and low-residue pesticides this year. Spinosad, pyrethrin, matrine, rotenone, ethalicin, and lupus in biological insecticides are expected to go out of the applause in the future. Strange circle, the green ecological pesticide market has a bright future.
[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.
China Pesticide and Fertilizer Network Time: 2015-6-17 9:57:00 Source: Agricultural Materials Guide Readings: 370 On May 29, at the fourth meeting of the ninth session of the China Pesticide Industry Association held in Yunnan, the draft of the second code rules for pesticide commodities drafted by the China Pesticide Industry Association was released to the public. The rules apply to the processing and exchange of information on commodities, trade items, assets, and locations in all links of the pesticide logistics supply chain.
