- Insecticides

Yangnong Chemical is the largest domestic producer of pyrethroid insecticides and the only listed company with pyrethroids as its leading products. It has ranked as the top domestic producer in terms of revenue from pyrethroid insecticides for years.

Moreover, the company is also the only domestic company equipped with a complete supply chain of pyrethroids – from basic chemical raw materials and intermediates, to pyrethroid TC and pyrethroid formulations. Thanks to this systematic production line, it enjoys lower production costs than its competitors.

Thanks to this, H1 2016 saw growth in its insecticide business:

  • Revenue: USD139.04 million (RMB928.57 million), up 2.58% YoY, thanks to a stable sales price and volume of pyrethroids
  • Gross profit margin: 29.79%, up 2.37 percentage points YoY, due to the decreased production costs of raw materials


- Herbicides

Glyphosate and dicamba are the main herbicides produced by Yangnong Chemical. Low prices of both inflicted serious damage on the company’s H1 herbicide business performance:

  • Revenue: USD81.62 million (RMB545.11 million), down 21.91% YoY
  • Gross profit margin: 23.48%, down 1.38 percentage points YoY

“This was mainly due to decreases in both the trading volumes and sales prices of these two products over H1 2016,” explained Yangnong Chemical.

Notably, Yangnong Chemical announced significant profits from its Rudong pesticide project (Phase I, put into production at the end of 2014) in its H1 2016 financial report. The company has also accelerated the construction of infrastructure and buildings for the second phase of this project (including 3,550 t/a insecticides, 25,000 t/a herbicides and 1,200 t/a fungicides, with a total investment of USD449.21 million – RMB3 billion).

So far, the second phase has passed the Safety Assessment, Environmental Impact Assessment and Hygienic Assessment. It is expected to be able to contribute to the company’s financial performance in 2017.
