Biotech Crop Breeding and Bio-pesticides Urge to Grow in China

China takes up 22% of the population in the world but with only 10% of global farmland. The figure tells the stress on Chinese food supply. Added with natural catastrophes, China is now urgently looking for new ways to make full use of every inch of the arable land. Biotech crop breeding may be a good choice.
Biotech Crop Breeding is not a brand-new concept to China, for it has been implementing the Agriculture Biosafety Regulation since 1996. Experiments applying in this kind of technology have never ceased at the moment. After being granted the Biosafety license, China has bred more than 20 hybrid combinations, among which the biotech rice resisting to insect pests is an outstanding achievement.

China’s Abamectin Industry Seeking Breakthrough by Joint Efforts

Abamectin prospects a bright future but it is overcapacity due to chaotic production and fierce competition since 2008, hindering the development of the whole industry. For the sustainable and healthy growth of the industry, large-scale abamectin enterprises have jointed to build a synergy group working together with crop protection industry associations.

Abamectin with rapid development relies on its high effectiveness, low toxicity, wide spectrum on insect and no residue on soil. With the phase-out of five kinds high toxicity pesticide, namely, methamidophos, parathion-methyl, parathion, moncrotophos and phosphamidon, abamectin has won its place in insecticide. Beside, China pays more attention to the investment in crop protection, environment protection and energy-saving, and abamectin becomes the substitute of high toxicity pesticide, which provides great opportunity for its growth.
