Brazil strengthens traceability systems

Brazil is to expand its inspection and tracing of quarantined agricultural pests and diseases. The phytosanitary certificate system is to be “fully computerised”. It seeks to avoid existing pests being transported through regions that are free of the pest or disease. Some 20,000 trained agronomists will deliver a document around the country, laying out requirements for the certificate of origin, the CFO. It will cover risk management on quarantined pests and diseases, such as Asian soybean rust ( Phakopsora pachyrhizi), including widening the adoption of the 90-day isolation policy of leaving ground fallow after harvest, the banana disease, black sigatoka ( Mycosphaerella fijiensis), and citrus black spot ( Guignardia citricarpa). The Ministry of Agriculture is to increase funding, technology and human resources for the project, and is considering stronger regulations.
