Herbicide Market Earthquake Pesticide Industry Faces New Test
In recent years, there have been many criticisms from all walks of life in the world regarding the pesticide industry and pesticide products. Some countries even discuss the necessity of pesticides, which has brought great impact on the pesticide industry. At the recent meeting in Lyon, France, the World Health Organization (WHO) classified the herbicide glyphosate as a "probable" carcinogen, and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) announced in less than three months that it would A comprehensive review of the bulk herbicide 2,4-D may be a good news for the pesticide industry. The IARC continued to re-evaluate glyphosate and 2,4-D products. Together with the paraquat water solution that has been denounced last year, the herbicide industry is facing an unfair trial. These three products are the bulk products of China's herbicide exports. If these three products are banned from production and use, then the Chinese pesticide market may return directly to 10 years ago, and the Chinese pesticide industry will face enormous challenges. It is not hard to imagine that after the announcement of this news, there will be a major earthquake in the global herbicide market. It has been proven that Dow was the first victim. The company launched a combination product of 2,4-D and glyphosate this year. The product has just been approved by the US Environmental Protection Agency and the honeymoon period has not yet passed. It was sued by American farmers and environmental groups.
This is very unfair to the entire pesticide industry and pesticide practitioners. In fact, people engaged in the pesticide industry have become accustomed to negative reports and comments on pesticides. Many old experts and scholars engaged in pesticide research all year round, and their cancer incidence has not improved. Many of them have lived healthy for 90 years. . Agriculture is a slow-growing industry. Its consumption level has been ranked behind all industries. Therefore, the development of its related fields, especially the pesticide industry, has been slow. However, after entering the 21st century, the whole world has been active, has already banned many highly toxic pesticides, and has spared no effort to promote efficient and low-toxic products to farmers. Great achievements have been made. If there are many organizations at this time to take the "uncertainty" reason to question the safety of pesticides, then the development of the pesticide industry will be slower, and its role in safeguarding grain production will no longer exist. Therefore, experts have urged the public not to single out the pesticide industry alone, because they themselves have a high level of ambition. They have been working hard not to deprive them of the opportunity to contribute to safeguarding food production. (Source: China Pesticide Information Network)
