Brazil state computerises agchem sales data

The Brazilian state of Parana has launched a computerised data collection system on all pesticide sales within its boundaries. State governor Roberto Reqiuao initiated the pesticide use and prescription system, the Siagro, earlier this month. Agronomic receipts will be electronically logged at the region’s agricultural inspection service, the Defis. The Siagro replaces a paper-based system, which could not adequately cope with the volume of data. Some 80,000 tonnes of pesticides are used in the state each year, while around 3 million receipts are submitted through the system. Within 90 days, all pesticides sold in the state will be logged at the Defis, the state’s Ministry of Agriculture, the Seab, says.
