Information @ a Glance:
  • Agrichemical (or agrochemical) a contraction of agricultural chemical, is a generic term for the various chemical products used in agriculture.
  • The number of steps and types of intermediates used in the synthesis of active agrochemical substances varies widely.
  • India is the second largest producer of agrochemicals in Asia and is one of the most dynamic generic pesticide manufacturers in the world. Out of 145 pesticides registered in India, 85 of a technical grade are locally produced. India is a global sourcing base for generic agrochemicals.
  • India's agricultural chemicals market is estimated at USD 650 million and is expected to grow 10 to 12 percent per year.
  • The south Indian State of Andhra Pradesh accounts for approximately 35 to 40 percent of the total agrochemicals consumed in the country.
  • There are an estimated 30 major agricultural chemical manufacturers, and more than 600 smaller manufacturers in India.
  • India is the third largest producer and consumer of fertilizers in the world.
  • Agrochemical manufacturing is highly dependent upon both oil and gas.
  • The production of agro chemically active substances, let alone formulations and packaged products, in this multi-step process involves several different companies with varying chemical technologies spread out across the world.
  • In India and Pakistan, 53% and 70% of total pesticides are consumed by cotton respectively.
  • In recent years, the Indian agricultural chemicals market has experienced a shift from high volume low priced agricultural chemicals to low volume high priced chemicals.
  • Though in recent years, biological insecticide has developed fast, with the growth rate of 20~40%, biological insecticide will not play a significant role in the next 5~10 years, because of its high price of biological insecticide.
The Products: chemicals used in agricultural production mostly used as sprays to control insects or other pests, weeds or plant diseases ;Following are  the Agro-chemicals registered for use in India under the Central Insecticides Act, 1968.
