Pyraclostrobin market to be promising in China
With the number of pyraclostrobin's field efficacy tests soaring, coupled withits patent expiring in June 2015, the market of pyraclostrobin in China is expected to bepromising.
pyraclostrobin, fungicide, BASF, strobilurin fungicides, azoxystrobin, pyraclostrobintechnical and formulations. ICAMA, mixed formulations
The pyraclostrobin, a strobilurin fungicide developed by BASF in 1993 and entered themarket in 2001, has been widely used in the fields of wheat, rice, grape, banana, orange,vegetables, etc. to control powdery mildew, anthracnose, scab, leaf spot and so on.Thanks to the pyraclostrobin's good performance in the global market, and especially inthe US and Brazil, the pyraclostrobin has brought a fat profit to BASF and it has grown tobe the second largest fungicide in the world as reported. Like other strobilurin fungicidessuch as the azoxystrobin, the pyraclostrobin has advantages like a low dosage, broadspectrum, high efficacy, low toxicity and others yet to be found. What's more, it can alsoprevent and cure diseases caused by germs resistant to other fungicides. In the past fewyears, the pyraclostrobin has been registered in many countries and regions in the world,including Brazil, Canada, Australia, Argentina, the US, etc, according toCCM
s latestmonthly report,Fungicides China News 1304.  In China, according to the Institute for the Control of Agrochemicals, Ministry of Agriculture(ICAMA), as of 12 March 2013, pyraclostrobin technical and formulations have beenregistered by BASF only due to their patent protection. The active ingredient (AI) contentof the pyraclostrobin technical is 95% and the specification for pyraclostrobin singleformulation is 250g/L EC. Moreover, the registrations of pyraclostrobin combined withmetiram and dimethomorph have also been acquired by BASF with the registration codesPD20080506 and PD20093402 respectively.In addition, China has been actively applying for pyraclostrobin's field efficacy tests inrecent years, in a bid to formally register this product when its patent in China expires inJune 2015. According to the ICAMA, China began pyraclostrobin's field efficacy tests as early as 2009. And it became popular in 2012, with their number soaring to 47 from 6 in 2011. Currently,the total number of those tests in China hits 62, including 37 for single formulations and 25for mixed formulations. As to mixed formulations, pyraclostrobin combined with propineb,dithianon and dimethomorph are popular, accounting for 36% of the total field efficacytests. Furthermore, the main specifications for pyraclostrobin's single formulations are 25%WDG, 25% SC and 30% SC.In field efficacy tests, pyraclostrobin is used to prevent and cure the cucumber downy
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.
