enrich product lineup, increase market competitiveness effectively and meet the social demand. Shaanxi Yijianyizhi has set up the
R&D base project of 2,500 t/a green pesticide and intermediate, which will bring the production capacities of 500 t/a phethalanilic
acid TC, 1 ,000 t/a bifenazate TC and 1 ,000 t/a flonicamid TC to the company.
Ningxia Taiyicin intends to further expand the production capacity of emamectin benzoate TC through launching technical upgrading
project, based on the consideration of future growth in emamectin benzoate TC market, and for better supporting the company's
own production of emamectin benzoate formulations.
According to the announcement jointly issued by multiple departments of Hunan Province, Hunan Gofar is included in the list of
chemical company located within 1 km along the river that is encouraged and asked to remove to qualified chemical park 1 km
away from the riverbank, and the removal should be completed before the end of 2025. As response to the relocation, Hunan Gofar
stated that it is under normal production and operation currently, and the deadline for the relocation is at the end of 2025, thus it has adequate time to conduct research and survey on qualified chemical park theoretically; the relocation plan will not cause negative
impact on the company's production and operation in short term, and in long term, the company may realize transformation and
upgrading by virtue of the relocation.
Synwill Group's full-automatic production line of pesticide intermediate project (phase I) has been under construction for over a

Content of this project consists of 1 ,1 00 t/a parazole, 500 t/a pyrazole disulfide, 500 t/a 8-hydroxyquinolinesulfate, 550 t/a 2,6-dichlorobenzoxazole, 200 t/a oxazoline, 1 60 t/a 2-mercapto-5-methyl-1 ,3,4-thiadiazole, 70 t/a methanesulfonamide, 200 t/a isopropylamide, 350 t/a diphenacylamine, 1 ,000 t/a triazinone and 2,000 t/a cyclopropanecarboxylic acid.
Jiangsu Weier has made it clear that its headquarter production plant in Xiangshui Ecological Chemical Park, Yancheng City,
Jiangsu Province and the production plant of its wholly-owned subsidiary, namely Binhai Kangjie, situated in Binhai Chemical Park,
Yancheng City, Jiangsu Province will not resume work, and after the arrangements for lands and plants are approved by the local
governments, priority will be given to transfer Jiangsu Weier and Binhai Kangjie to an uncorrelated third party, or liquidation and
deregistration will be launched by the company itself.
In July, domestic ex-works prices of organophosphorus insecticides remained stable generally; ex-works prices of pyrethroid
insecticides didn't go up and some of them even went down because of the slack demand although the import of meta phenoxy
benzaldehyde, an upstream raw material, was hindered by the COVID-1 9 pandemic in India; ex-works prices of nicotinamide
insecticides had MoM declines generally while the price of pymetrozine TC maintained at high level on account of the continuous
tight supply. Besides, flonicamid TC, chlorfenapyr TC and indoxacarb TC were in supply tightness as well in July.
Flood continued striking China in mid-July. The most affected provinces are Guizhou, Jiangxi, Sichuan, Hunan and Hubei Provinces
where there are many pesticide producers in addition to phosphorus chemical companies. So far, not huge impact has been
caused to the overall supply and price of insecticides by the flood; and it is expected that the supply of insecticides TC products
won't fluctuate because of the flood in the future. But not a small amount of insecticide formulation producers are located in the
provinces mentioned above, thus the production and transportation of insecticides formulation products may be hindered if the flood
continues, which may indirectly influence the demand for insecticide TC and cause temporarily oversupply of insecticide TC
products, dragging down prices of some insecticide TC at the end.
China's export of thiamethoxam including TC and formulation products in April, 2020 soared YoY, but the export price of
thiamethoxam declined YoY on a whole.
July, 2020 saw 11 2 pesticide registration extensions. From the prospect of forms, EC had the most registration extensions,
followed by WP and SC. From the prospect of active ingredients, abamectin-aminomethyl products stared in pesticide registration
extensions, and then there were imidacloprid, acetamiprid and bifenthrin. From the prospective of pesticide category, insecticide
had the most with the number of 97, while hygienic insecticide had 11 . From the prospective of toxicity, nearly a half of the
pesticides with extended registrations were of low toxicity.
On 1 2 July, 2020, Liaoning Provincial Party Committee and Provincial Government issued instruction on the disposition of the 7.11
explosion accident, which required companies situated in the Fuxin Fluorine Industrial Development Zone to shut down for
rectification and required close the companies with failure to meet the environmental protection standards and hidden dangers of
production safety. Affected by the accident, official productions of Liaoning Zhonghui's phase I and phase II projects that are at the
end of construction will be delayed. But to be optimistic, Liaoning Zhonghui can take full advantage of the chance to investigate the
hidden dangers of environmental protection and safety as well as to launch rectification and upgrading, which will be of great help
for sustainable development in the future.
According to the prediction made on the 2020 national online conference of occurrence trends of pests and diseases on middle to
late rice held by NATESC, major pests and diseases on middle to late rice will happen on a slightly serious level and will be more
server than that of last year generally, with the affected area of 980 million mu. Notably, rice planthopper, rice leaf roller and rice stem borer are expected to occur on slightly serious level. Therefore it is worth attention on whether the demands for imidacloprid,chlorpyrifos and abamectin will increase in the next few months.
