Brazil Senate mulls inquiry into agchem use

A Brazilian Senate commission is considering the creation of a parliamentary investigation into the use of agrochemicals. Senate human rights commission president Ana Rita says that the commission is to evaluate the setting up of a parliamentary commission of inquiry (CPI) to look into the industry. Her comments came at the end of a public audience debate that heard evidence on the use of pesticides in Brazilian agriculture. Ms Rita is also backing calls for a ban on aerial pesticide spraying near urban areas. "It is unacceptable for farms close to urban areas employ this type of spraying," the Senator declared.
