Botanical Insecticide Production Base Settles in HenanSummary: A botanical insecticide production base settles in Henan Povince, which willsupply low-toxic and inexpensive biological insecticides to domestic farmers.Tags: insecticide, pesticide, botanical insecticide, production, biological insecticide, biologicalagricultureOn 9 June, 2012, the foundation-laying ceremony of a botanical insecticide production base washeld in Sheqi County, a key tobacco planting region in Henan Province. By extracting nicotineand solanesol from tobacco and other plants, the production base aims to supply low-toxic andinexpensive biological insecticides to domestic farmers, according to CCM International’s Julyissue of Insecticides China News.After being put into operation in 2013, the production base will be able to process 70,000 tonnesof plant raw materials each year, outputting 300 tonnes of 98% botanical nicotine with purity over98% and 420 tonnes of botanical solanesol with purity over 90%. Eventually, about 40,000 tonnesof biological insecticides and 50,000 tonnes of bio-organic fertilizers would be produced with amaximum capacity annually.The production base totally covers an area of 27 ha., with total investment of nearly USD95.24million (RMB600 million) from Henan Boyi Investment Co., Ltd. (Henan Boyi, a prominent high-tech biological investor in Henan Province). It is expected that an annual revenue of USD439.60million (RMB2.8 billion) would be generated after the formal launch.According to Liu Gang, President of Henan Boyi, the sub-critical fluid extraction technology will beapplied to extract nicotine and solanesol from tobacco leaf and other plant materials. Comparedwith conventional extraction methods, this technology owns multiple advantages, such asenvironmentally friendly, perfectly maintaining the activity of extracts, energy saving, lowoperation cost, etc. Mr. Liu also revealed that botanical pesticides will be developed andproduced relied on the effective compounding of target products extracted from plant materials.The biological insecticide production project of Henan Boyi reveives strong support fromgovernments for its merits of energy-conservative and eco-friendly. Delegates from the Ministry ofAgriculture, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, Henan Academy of Agricultural Sciencesand local government took part in the foundation-laying ceremony.
Botanical insecticides are a hot field of research at present. Several botanical insecticides havebeen applied by domestic farmers at present, such as matrine, nicotine, rotenone, pyrethrins andazadirachtin.Eco-friendliness, easy degradation, low residue and low resistance generated by pests makebotanical pesticides well recognized, which are superior to chemical pesticides. Botanicalpesticides are embracing a great development chance, said Director Zhang Xing from NorthwestA&F University.Highly toxic pesticides are banned one after another in China, while eco-friendly pesticides, likebotanical insecticides, are enjoying a steadily increasing demand. As mentioned in the Decisionon Speeding up Cultivation and Development of Strategic Infant Industry promulgated by theState Council, the Chinese government will "pay attention to cultivate biological breeding industryand promote green agricultural biological products to stimulate the development of biologicalagriculture" in the future.Source: Insecticides China News 1207http://www.cnchemicals.com/Newsletter/NewsletterDetail_1.htmlMain content of Insecticides China News 1207:Where is the way out of abamectin ointment?Huayang Group to transfer shares in Huayang TechnologyJiangsu Taisong finishes relocating technical production lines of diazinon, pyridabenJiangsu Sword expands nitenpyram technical capacity to 1,000t/a Chinas imidacloprid export volume rises in Jan.-AprilBotanical insecticide production base settles in HenanMosquito repellents generally contain DEET and BAAPEZhejiang Dongfeng opens up Egypts pesticide market……Insecticides China News, a monthly publication issued by CCM International on 10th of everymonth, provides the latest and influential analysis on insecticide industry for you, includingcompany dynamics, supply and demand, price analysis, policy, raw material and intermediate.About CCM
