After years of substantial growth, the crop protection market in China at farm level saw minimal growth (0.5%) in value in harvest year 2017, according to the latest figures just released from our annual China CropTrak™ market survey.
Zero growth doesn't mean zero change, however. There have been significant changes in farmer behavior impacting the CP market. Farmer behavior changes have seen a decrease in Product Area Treated over the last 4 years, with a reduction in the number of applications and tank-mixed products.
