Quarter of Brazil agchem application is aerial

One quarter of all land treated with pesticides in Brazil is from aerial applications, the national association of agricultural aviators says. The sector’s revenues totalled R$600 million ($356 million at the current rate) in 2009. The cost of operations not including pesticides was R$14($8.30)/ha, while land applications cost R$7.20($4.30)/ha. The association has 231 associate companies, and the industry counted on 1,044 aircraft in 2009. The speed of treatments and not needing to use tractors are what attract farmers to their use, the generic agrochemical industry association, the Aenda, says.
