Will Paraquat be Fully Banned in China?

A proposal about further restricting and forbidding the use of paraquat was raised at the 4th China High-Level Forum on Pesticides. Domestic pesticide industry was shocked and dispute is raised in and out of the domestic pesticide industry.

The opinion that supports the ban on paraquat believes that the non-selective herbicide with high toxicity does harm to the environment and animals. Eyeing that more than 5,000 people die from the poisoning caused by paraquat annually, many medical workers propose legislating against the use of paraquat in the National People's Congress.

However, those who hold different opinions believe that it is not paraquat which kills people but the misleading use and abuse of paraquat. They oppose to the idea of all-out ban on paraquat, which is irreplaceable at present.

Anyway, whether banning paraquat or not still can't be nailed down and the implementation of the policy is still beyond expectation. The all-out ban on the product in China may still have a long way to go.
