Manufacture of Pesticides and Other Agrochemical Products


The pesticides and agrochemical industry are facing major changes in terms of technological developments and consumers becoming increasingly conscious about health. The growth of the industry in biopesticides, which are derived from natural materials such as animals, plants, bacteria, and certain minerals, may provide growth opportunities for South African companies.


Slow Growth, Infestations and Disease


Growth in the industry continues to be affected by low economic growth and climatic conditions that adversely impacted on plantings. The industry has also faced a series of challenges including infestations of fall armyworms, Asian fruit flies and polyphagous shot-hole borer beetles which have attacked various tree species and crops such as avocado, macadamia, stone fruit and wine crops. In addition, some citrus exports were suspended due to European Union concerns over the spreading of black spot disease.
