English Abstract: This paper presents an analysis of the pesticide industry in Colombia. Some variables like international production and consumption of pesticides are considered for the worldwide context. Subsequently, we study the involvement of pesticides in Colombian production structure. Likewise, a regulatory background and the regulated freedom regime are presented. We use a database provided by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development with information between January 2006 and May 2013. These data allowed elaborate an analysis of market concentration and industrial dominance. Similarly we studied the differences between ex-factory price and the retail price.
