Brazil organic crop sector grows by over 20% in 2013

The size of the Brazilian organic crop industry grew by over a fifth last year. The number of organic crop growers and "productive units" rose by 22% compared with 2012 to over 6,700 and 10,000, respectively. The growth has been aided by a model of diverse quality control mechanisms, according to the Agricultural Development Secretariat's organic agriculture co-ordinator, Rogério Dias. The number of self-regulatory but government recognised associations within the sector almost doubled. Those have facilitated the increase in the number of registered organic crop producers. The government launched its national organic crop production plan, Planapo, last year, building on a project for the sector it launched in 2012 (Agrow No 647, p 15). It aims to almost further treble the number of organic crop productive units to 28,000 by the end of 2015.
