Hubei Xingfa (Xingfa), the world’s second largest producer of glyphosate, will attend the 18th annual China International Agrochemical & Crop Protection Exhibition (CAC) from March 1–3, 2017, at the Shanghai New International Expo Center, marking the company’s continued expansion into the global glyphosate business.

The agrochemical industry relies on glyphosate, one of the most widely used herbicides, for a range of weed-control applications in agriculture. Unlike traditional glyphosate manufacturers, Xingfa’s full integration into the glyphosate vertical allows for a reliable and sustainable source of high-quality glyphosate at predictable costs. With 17 phosphate mines, Xingfa has the largest phosphorus reserves in China. Additionally, the company ensures consistent supply of the highest quality glyphosate by maintaining control over its own mining operations, hydropower stations, production of key raw materials such as glycine and caustic soda, active and formulation manufacturing sites, and shipping wharfs.

“We understand that the reliable and affordable supply of high-quality glyphosate is an important need for farmers across the world,” said J. Bryan Kitchen, President of Xingfa USA. “We look forward to opportunities such as the CAC to meet face-to-face with the agrochemical community and show them how we are uniquely equipped to help them address these needs.”

Xingfa has successfully passed the National Environment Production Inspection Verification process and holds numerous international quality control certifications.

In order to raise awareness of their unmatched reliability, excellent cost predictability, and localized service, Xingfa will operate booth #2A01–2B01 at CAC 2017.

Interested parties can contact J. Bryan Kitchen, President of Xingfa USA to set up a meeting or receive more information about the Xingfa itinerary at CAC 2017.
