Editorial

The Indian Economic Survey has pegged the country's agriculture sector growth at 5.4 per cent this fiscal, as against 0.4 per cent in the previous year.

The Survey also called for a "Second Green Revolution with technological breakthrough in the agriculture sector" to boost farm output and ensure the food security of the country.

India's overall grain output in the 2010-11 crop year is expected to a grow 6 per cent at 232.07 MT with rice output to touch 94.01 MT from 89.09 MT, wheat to set fresh record of 81.47 MT against 80.8 MT,among non-food crops, oil seeds production to rise to 2 7.84 MT against 24.88 MT and cotton to touch a record 33.9 million bales, against 24.2 million bales. Sugarcane output is also expected to increase to 336.69 MT against 2 92.3 MT the estimate showed.

In China the story is similar where the estimate shows the grain output will increase over 2.5 billion kg more than the output in 2010, reaching about 549 billion kg and cotton 6.5 MT. But these estimates will be achieved only if there is no adverse climatic conditions and natural disaster.

In spite of the good growth in farm sector in many countries, prices of food commodities have touched all time high in the past few months. FAO also pressed the danger alarm button to warn the globe about the production and supply gap that may lead to greater hunger and poverty. The world can face the challenge only if the governments in the developing economy take greater responsibility in helping the farming community to achieve maximum output of crop yield through technology, pesticides, fertilizers, seeds, irrigation facilities and above all financial support and proper education on agricultural practices. Practical regulatory requirements for registration of agrochemical is still a thing far away it looks.

Agrochemical companies for their part should follow ethics in fixing the prices and maintaining proper quality parameters rather than aiming just profits. (MT-million tones).

Agrochemical Exports From China

Over the last decade, China has become a major source for the manufacture of agrochemicals, having a reputation for the provision of low priced product which in some cases has been perceived to be erosive to agrochemical pricing. This review will analyse the position of China as an exporter of agrochemicals and its position in the world market, as well as recent trends in the development of the country’s export business. The data used in this analysis is based on chapter 3808 of the export statistics which reports products packaged for retail sale; it does not include product that may be sold in technical form or under other classifications. The analysis has focused on herbicides, fungicides, insecticides and plant growth regulators, but excludes rodenticides, disinfectants etc. which are also included in chapter 3808.

Leading Agrochemical Exporting Countries 2009
Rank Country $m
1 France 2557.1
2 Germany 2466.2
3 USA 2104.2
4 Belgium 1617.5
5 China 1398.2
6 United Kingdom 972.0
7 India 708.3
8 Switzerland 704.4
9 Spain 608.9
10 Netherlands 589.4
11 Italy 559.7
12 Israel 468.4
13 Japan 336.7
14 Hungary 158.7
15 Rep. of Korea 135.6

The table above, which outlines the leading agrochemical exporting countries by value, shows that in 2009, China was the fifth largest exporter of agrochemicals worldwide. In the case of Belgium, it is possible that a proportion of the export total represents re-export of product which has entered through the country’s seaports.

The Table on the following page shows the breakdown of exports by the leading fifteen exporting countries in 2009 by herbicides, insecticides and fungicides. Also included is the average price of exports, derived from the total value and volume of all product sold. The data shows that in 2009, China was the fourth largest exporter of insecticides, the ninth largest exporter of fungicides and the fifth largest exporter of herbicides.

Registration of Endosulfan cancelled in Australia
The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) advises that it has cancelled the registration of the insecticide endosulfan. This decision follows a recent assessment of newinformation by the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities (DSEWPC) that the prolonged use of endosulfan is likely to lead to adverse environmental effects via spray drift and run-off. A full risk assessment conducted by DSEWPC concluded that these long term risks could not be mitigated through restrictions on use or variations to label instructions.

In future, agricultural products containing endosulfan will no longer be registered in Australia. The three current approvals for endosulfan have also been cancelled, and the five products containing the chemical will be phased out over the next two years.

This time period has been imposed because of the relatively limited amounts of endosulfan in use and is in line with phase-out periods imposed by other national regulators who have similarly taken recent action against endosulfan.

Risks to human health were not a factor in the APVMA decision. While recent and emerging toxicological data were assessed by the Office of Chemical Safety and Environmental Health, it has been determined that the current regulatory regime has been effective in managing these risks.

Some of the new environmental data on which the APVMA’s decision is based emerged following the recent nomination of endosulfan to the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs).

This nomination focussed more attention on endosulfan and produced a large volume of new information on itsenvironmental fate and effects.

Mobile phones to help Filipino farmers
Farmers will soon be able to have tailored advice delivered to their mobile phone Rice farmers in the Philippines will soon be able to access tailored advice direct from their mobile phones on the amounts and timings of fertiliser applications for their specific fields. Set up by the Philippine Department of Agriculture and the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), the service is designed to help farmers maximise their output.

Bringing precision agriculture with IT to smallscale farmers can open up opportunities for farmers to obtain a fertilizer recommendation via a text message and then use their phones to access suppliers of the fertilizer and financing options to purchase it, explains Dr. Roland Buresh from IRRI.

To receive the free text message in their own language with recommendations on what type of fertiliser to use, how much, and when, farmers will simply have to phone a central number and answer a series of automated questions about their rice field and the growing conditions.

Nutrient management decision tools to provide fieldspecific recommendations for rice, wheat and maize are also now under development. Information technology and mobile phone applications could change the role of extension workers, Buresh adds. In the future, they could become less of a technical expert on a topic such as nutrient management and more of anexpert on where and how to access information.
