Albaugh, Inc., a privately held manufacturer of off-patent crop protection, recently launched an ad campaign in newspapers bringing attention to its anti-dumping petition against Chinese makers of glyphosate.


The ad explains how Albaugh filed a petition to impose anti-dumping duties on glyphosate imported into the U.S. from China. In late 2007, glyphosate prices were rising dramatically and as a result, China ramped up its glyphosate production. However, production did not decrease when prices began to plummet and the Chinese manufacturers began dumping the product on U.S. markets that were below the U.S.'s costs of production.
