In recent years, through the implementation of international conventions, the production, use and international trade of highly toxic and high-risk pesticides are under stricter control. Following the international conventions, all countries in the world have actively implemented ban or restriction measures on pesticides according to their own national conditions. For example, in recent years, paraquat, the second largest variety of herbicides, has had the second highest pathogenicity rate among the pesticides after the organophosphorus pesticide, So paraquat has been banned or severely restricted by more than 20 countries.

The pesticide industry in China had started late. However, since the 1990s, in order to improve the pesticide production rate, the state had continuously increased the investment in the pesticide industry. After many years of development, China's pesticide output and sales value have been growing year by year. Due to fierce market competition, new product development appears quite difficult, with the increased risks and the long development period. In order to strengthen the R&D ability, achieve the scale effect and the synergy, increase the market share, reduce the costs and increase the profits, the pesticide enterprises have merged and reorganised frequently. Development of the industry is centralised and monopolised.

The 13th Five-year Plan for Economic and Social Development of the People’s Republic of China points out the implementation of zero growth action in the usage of chemical fertilizers and pesticides, which indicates that the consumption structure of pesticides will be adjusted. The pesticides of high toxicity and high residue in the past will be gradually eliminated by the market, giving way to those pesticides with high efficiency, low toxicity and low residue. For example, in the field of herbicides, the selective herbicides like acetochlor and trifluralin can be widely replaced by the pendimethalin which is environmental-friendly, efficient and lowly-toxic. At the same time, the relevant ban or restriction policies of pesticides will be issued constantly.

In recent years, due to the frequent safety and environmental protection accidents in domestic production enterprises as well as the development of social technology, the old environmental protection policies are no longer applicable. China has increased the revisions and improvement of environmental protection policies and production safety policies.
