Most illegal Brazilian agchems targeted at soybeans

Soybeans account for over half of the targeted crop area for the illegal pesticide trade in Brazil, national agricultural newswire Agrolink reports. Contraband pesticide products that have been confiscated over the past nine years would have been applied to almost 2.8 million ha of soybeans, figures from the agricultural inputs distributors’ association, the ANDAV, show. The other major target is wheat. Some 2.3 million ha of the crop would have been treated with those seized products. Illegal products could have been used to treat 5.6 million ha of Brazilian farmland since 2001.
