Plant protection products; sales by weight by productgroup

Edit table

This table contains data on the sales of plant protection products (placed on the market) by the agrochemical industry of the Netherlands.
These products are sold to and used by holdings in sectors like agriculture, horticulture and industry, municipalities and governmental organisations.
Plant protection products are sold (and used) to control diseases, insect plagues or weeds and the
annual amounts of sales is expressed as the weight of the active substance.

The figures are given of six major groups: fungicides and bactericides; herbicides, haulm destructors and moss killers; insecticides and acaricides; molluscicides; plant growth regulators; other plant protection products. These six major groups are subdivided in 31 categories of products. Each active substance is in only one major group or only one category of products.

Data available from: 2010

Status of the figures: definitive

Changes as of 27 March 2020:
Defintive figures of 2010 and 2018 have been added. The sequence of the major groups has been changed.

Changes as of 19 December 2019:
Figures of major groups as well as categories of product have been provided for the period 2011-2017.

When will new figures be published?
Figures of 2019 will become available at January 2021.
