Brazil President’s commission seeks agchem use reduction

The Brazilian national agro-ecology and organic production commission, the Cnapo, has approved the national pesticide reduction programme, the Pronaro. The commission is administered by the Consea, an advisory body to the national President. The programme was developed by a working group composed of civil society and government members. Brazil’s position as “champion” or leading adopter of pesticides over the past five years has been the catalyst for the development, the commission says. The programme seeks a cut in pesticide use and a switch to alternative agriculture methods such as the adoption of organic crop production. It will contain six streams: registration; control, monitoring and responsibility across the supply chain; financial measures; development of alternatives; information, participation and social control; and training.
