The Brazilian agrochemical market rose by 10.2% to $7,320 million in 2010, according to the national generic agrochemical industry association, the Aenda. The association’s estimate is a little higher than that of the major reviewer of the national market, the agrochemical industry trade association, the Sindag. Its review of the 2010 market found that it had risen by 9% to $7,240 million ( Agrow No 610, p 17). The Aenda estimates indicate that Syngenta and Bayer CropScience maintained the leading positions in the Brazilian market and FMC remained in the top four. Fersol replaced Consagro as the leading Aenda associate in the market with sales of some $90 million. It was ranked as 15th and followed by Rotam in 18th place, and Helm in 19th, each posting sales of some $40 million.
