Paraquat is one of the most widely used herbicides in the world. But it is highly toxic, and studies have found that ingesting just 3 grams of it can cause failure of the liver, kidney and other organs, fibrosis of the lungs, and respiratory failure. There is no known antidote so far.

Since 1 July, 2016, all paraquat AS formulation products had been forbidden for sale or application in China. Also, the solicit opinions manuscript regarding the prohibition and limitation on the use of some pesticides, issued by the Ministry of Agriculture of the People's Republic of China (MOA) in May 2016, had revised paraquat's toxicity and reclassified it as extremely toxic, and field experiments and registration applications for paraquat are no longer to be accepted or approved.

Some authorities in the MOA are doubtful toward new formulations and have not approved new registrations yet. Currently, Nanjing Redsun Co., Ltd is the only company authorized to sell paraquat non-AS formulation, and its license will be expired in September 2023. And no one is allowed to produce paraquat non-AS formulations for domestic use anymore.

About 53 countries including the entire European Union, China, Laos, Kuwait, Sri Lanka, Vietnam and Cambodia have banned paraquat. More and more countries including Taiwan, Malaysia, Brazil and Thailand will join the ban in the future. China’s output and export volume of paraquat declined correspondingly in 2018, along with the ban of paraquat in Vietnam.
