On June 8, 2017, the Ministry of Commerce issued an announcement No. 29 of 2017, which decided to conduct an anti-dumping investigation against imported phenoxybenzaldehyde originating in India. M-phenoxybenzaldehyde is an important chemical intermediate of pesticides, mainly used in combination with cypermethrin, beta-cypermethrin, fenvalerate, fenpropathrin, and other pyrethroids, and then used in the manufacture of pesticide formulations such as pyrethroids.
Beta-cypermethrin is an efficient isomer of cypermethrin with high biological activity. The main mechanism of action is contact killing and stomach poisoning. It has good control effect against Pieris rapae, Plutella xylostella, Aphid,Wheat midge,Mythimna separata,Pyrausta nubilalis etc.
Beta-cypermethrin is of advanced dosage form and does not contaminate fruit surface and leaves when used, and does not affect photosynthesis. It is not easy to cause phytotoxicity and can be safely used in all stages of crops.
