Novel Pesticide Active Ingredients Developed by China

Although China becomes the largest supplier in the global crop protection market, most of the pesticides produced or exported from China are low-value-added generics.

Since 7th FYP (from 1985 to 1989), 50 new active ingredients have been developed by Chinese institutes or pesticide companies, which included 14 insecticides, 25 fungicides, 8 herbicides and 3 plant growth regulators. The name, category, inventor, patent and registration status and producer of these new active ingredients are summarized in the table below:
