Brazil agchem production strongly up

The Brazilian crop protection sector grew in the first half of 2010, the official market information service, the IBGE, reports. Production of pesticides rose by more than a third (+34.1%) compared with the first half of 2009 within overall growth of the agriculture industry of 6%. The IBGE points out that the comparison is with a low base in last year’s first half, “due to the international economic crisis at the end of 2008, which impacted on exports and commodity prices”. Production in the first quarter rose even more strongly, by 44.7%, while it increased by 24.3% in the second quarter.
