mildew, banana scab, apple leaf spot, rice sheath blight, grape downy mildew, wheat rust,etc. Cucumber, banana and apple are the top 3 crops tested with the pyraclostrobin,taking up 21%, 16% and 15% of the total amount of tests respectively. It is also worthnoticing that fruits and vegetables account for around 60% of the total crops tested, whilethe figure is only 15% for field crops (rice and wheat). It indicates that there is a huge roomfor pyraclostrobin's application on field crops in China's market.In China, more and more companies have been participating in the pyraclostrobin's fieldefficacy tests in recent years. According to the ICAMA, 37 domestic companies haveapplied for them as of 12 March 2013. Among the companies, Shaanxi Sunger RoadBio-Science Co., Ltd. (Shaanxi Sunger Road) applied for 5 pieces, ranking first, followedby Hailir Pesticides & Chemicals Group, Jiangxi Yingtan Shuangshou Pesticide Co., Ltd.and Shenzhen Noposion Agrochemicals Co., Ltd.In the future, especially in 2013 and 2014, the pyraclostrobin's field efficacy tests willcontinue to be popular in China. The total number is expected to increase greatly alongwith the number of applicants soaring and the type of mixed formulations diversified. Thecompanies that have applied for field efficacy tests are likely to register pyraclostrobin inthe domestic market.Driven by pyraclostrobin's promising profit, coupled with its good performance, it isexpected that domestic agrochemical companies will come in flocks after the product'spatent expiration in China in 2015, challenging BASF in the Chinese and global market.
