The Chinese have long been known as the masters of the herbicide.
It’s no secret that they have pioneered the use of a variety of chemical agents, which have been used by farmers for decades.
But this was only the beginning.
Today, they are also turning to a new strategy.
The Chinese are starting to use a different strategy for growing their herbicides, a strategy that has helped them to reduce their use of the chemical agents.
While they’re still far ahead of the Chinese, they have a more direct route to the Chinese market.
“China’s growing demand for herbicides has helped the Chinese grow herbicide production to a large extent,” says Nguyen Phuong, the director of the Vietnamese Institute for Biological and Environmental Sciences in Hanoi.
The Vietnamese are now competing with Chinese herbicides that are more cost-effective, cheaper to produce, and are less likely to be damaged by climate change.
“We’re not competing against the Chinese,” says Phuang.
The herbicide companies have found a new, cheaper way to compete with Chinese rivals, such as Bayer, the German company that makes Bayer’s herbicide glyphosate.
“The herbicide market is an opportunity that they’re using to expand their own markets,” says Patrick O’Brien, a senior analyst at Gartner, an information technology company.
China’s rising demand for glyphosate has helped it become a more efficient producer.
According to a report from the Chinese Ministry of Environmental Protection, the Chinese pesticide sector grew 7.4 percent in 2015, and its herbicide use rose 2.8 percent in that year.
While it’s important to note that China’s use of glyphosate is relatively low compared to other nations, it is still a significant part of the global herbicide industry.
China consumes an estimated 4.7 million tons of herbicides a year, according to the Environmental Protection Ministry.
“It’s very likely that by the end of this decade, China will be the world’s largest herbicide user,” says O’Brian.
China is also the world leader in producing pesticides and has been for decades, according the Environmental Impact Assessment, a scientific assessment that is required for a country’s environmental impact.
China produces more than 90 percent of the world total.
“In China, the biggest pesticide users are the United States, France, and Brazil,” O’Bryan says.
“That’s a huge market for them.”
The use of Chinese herbicidal agents has been on the rise in the United Kingdom, France and other countries, as well.
In 2014, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization reported that China was the third-largest market for pesticides.
China also is one of the biggest producers of pesticides in the world, according a report by the World Trade Organization.
China, which is in the process of establishing a global trade bloc, is also leading the global shift toward biotechnology.
According the WTO, China is the world chief producer of agricultural biotechnology and a major producer of new technologies that can be used to help farmers improve their crop yields.
It is also one of only a handful of countries that have already set up a global biotechnology research center.
The U.K. and the U.S. are also leading research efforts into the use and production of herbicide-resistant crops, while Germany is developing new crop varieties that are resistant to the herbicides.
In a recent interview with The Wall St. Journal, China’s top environmental official said the country is trying to become a global player in the biotechnology market.
The world’s most efficient growing countries are the ones that are most dependent on chemical pesticides.
“They are the most exposed to herbicides,” says John Schuman, an agricultural scientist at the University of Michigan.
“I think it’s not just China that has to change, but the entire world.”
