Paraguay implements soybean-free isolation period

Paraguay is imposing an isolation period between soybean harvest and new planting to combat Asian soybean rust ( Phakopsora pachyrhizi). The Senave has issued a resolution imposing 90 days from June 1st to August 30th free of soybean cultivation. Other crops may be planted in that period. The policy is similar to the one that has been successfully implemented in Brazil for the past few years ( Agrow No 570, p 16). The service says that implementation of the regulation has followed a widespread consultation with the sector. Crops have suffered “severely high” levels of incidence of the disease, bringing “excessive” use of fungicides.
