China needs to attach importance to extra small-package pesticide adjuvants regulation

Pesticide adjuvants in extra small packages now are being increasingly used in pesticide sales in China as pesticide formulations study is increasingly deepened in recent years. The problem of pesticide adjuvants in extra small packages needs to get sufficient attention on further strengthening the supervision and regulation establishment. On one hand, China lacks of regulations and supervision on the use of  pesticide adjuvants in extra small packages at present. On the other hand, some manufacturers add illegal ingredients secretly under the name of pesticide adjuvants, which has harmed the interests of many farmers. For example, a case happened in Zhengzhou City of Henan Province that pesticide adjuvants made the production of corn and peanut of 494 ha. decreased.

As a matter of fact, the Ministry of Agriculture of People's Public of China (MOA) has noticed the bright prospect and current problems of adjuvants in extra small packages in pesticide application. The MOA has been studying relevant standards for pesticide adjuvants in conjunction with some large pesticide manufacturers in China. In addition, a thematic workshop of pesticide environmental adjuvants was held in April 2012 during the Third Environment-friendly Pesticide Formulation Processing Technology and Production Equipment Symposium hosted by the Chinese Crop Protection Industry Association (CCPIA) in Kunshan City, Jiangsu Province.
Some insiders predicted that the regulations for pesticide adjuvants in extra small packages would be issued within two years.
