Demand for glyphosate continues to be strong, and December is still the peak season for pesticide exports. Some agrochemical companies have already placed orders until March next year.

The glycine analyst of SunSirs believes that the current price of glycine has risen to a high level.

In January, the price of glycine may see a slight price drop.
