As of 31st December 2018, the use of endosulfan and methyl bromide, the 2 high-toxic pesticides, will be prohibited in China for agricultural purpose.

Methyl bromide is a colorless and odorless gas. With its high efficiency and broad spectrum, the product can exterminate a large variety of insect pests. Since the 90’s last century, governments of all countries stopped the use of this fumigant. In China, from 1st July 2018, registration of methyl bromide is revoked, followed by prohibition of use of methyl bromide for agricultural purpose as of 31st December 2018.

At present, China has 3 methyl bromide technical enterprises and only 1 formulation product. In the US, methyl bromide is used for pre-planting soil fumigation, harvesting fumigation and architectural fumigation. In EU, it was banned in 2008. In Australia, it is only used for soil fumigation.

Endosulfan is an insecticidal and miticidal agent with contact toxicity and stomach toxicity, which is not systemic. As an organochlorine compound, it has a bioaccumulation and endocrine disruption effect. Since 1st July 2018, registration of endosulfan is revoked in China. From 27th March 2019, the use of all endosulfan products for agricultural purpose will be prohibited.

Endosulfan has been banned in more than 50 countries, including EU, some Asian and West African countries. However, it is still in use in quite a lot of countries including India, Brazil and Australia. Since 31st March 2016, registration of endosulfan is revoked in US. In EU, it was banned in 2005.
