It will invest some R$8,800 million (US$4,000 million) in the organic crop sector over the next three years. The government is to requisition land through the issue of 100 decrees by December 31st, Minister of Rural Development Pepe Vargas told delegates at the 2nd national conference on sustainable rural development. Brazil launched a strategy on promoting organic crop production, the Pnapo, last year (Agrow No 647, p 15).
