Although the export volume of fungicides is the least than those of herbicides and insecticides in the first nine months of this year, it has increased by 23.80% year on year to 59,000 tonnes, with its export value witnessing a remarkable rise of 43.70% to USD0.29 billion.
The robust demand for fungicides from domestic and overseas market is the most important factor pushing up its import and export in China in the first nine months of this year. It is estimated that both import and export of fungicides will maintain soaring up in the rest of 2011 for the booming fungicide market around the world.
