There are two unique features in Japanese agrochemical market. One is the popularity of one-shot herbicide and Pre-mixture of insecticide and fungicide. Part-time farmers especially in rice production buy high price but convenient products such as one shot herbicide and pre-mixtures (Insecticide and fungicide). One shot herbicide is a popular rice herbicide formulation that contains 2-5 AIs (three is most popular) in it to control annual and perennial weeds with a single treatment in paddy rice. Pre-mixture of insecticide and fungicide is convenient to control many insect pests and diseases. This leads to cooperation between Japanese national pesticide companies and Multinationals companies to combine their new patent AIs in mixture preparations of one shot rice herbicides and mixtures of insecticide and fungicides.
