In the first half of 2013, China's export volume of chlorothalonil technical and formulations dropped by 22.50% compared with that in H1 2012 to about 7,786 tonnes, according to the data from the General Administration of Customs of the People's Republic of China (China Customs) and Fungicides China News issued by CCM in September.
