China's chemical pesticide production amounted to an annual production volume of about 3.7 million tons in 2014. The import volume of pesticides to China maintained a steady growth and reached over 76 thousand tons in 2013 with an import value of over 690 million U.S. dollars that year. However, this figure was still insignificant compared to the export value of China pesticide manufacturing industry.
Regarding the public perception of pesticide manufacturing in China, concerns among Chinese consumers about pesticides had ranked first in a survey on food safety in 2014.Among Chinese farmers and agricultural businesses, the utilization of pesticide in China differed greatly from region to region. Shandong, Henan and Hubei were the provinces that used the most pesticide, consuming over 400,000 tons in 2013, whereas the provinces of Tibet, Qinghai and Ningxia had utilized less than 6,000 tons of pesticide that year. Pesticide products contain at least one active ingredient and other intentionally added inert ingredients. Called “inert ingredients” by the federal law, they are combined with active ingredients to make a pesticide product. Inerts are chemicals, compounds, and other substances, including common food commodities (e.g., certain edible oils, spices, herbs) and some natural materials (e.g., beeswax, cellulose).Inert ingredients play key roles in pesticide effectiveness and product performance. Examples of functions inerts can serve include: Act as a solvent to help the active ingredient penetrate a plant's leaf surface.
