Brazil region bans agchem aerial spraying

Aerial spraying of pesticides has been banned in a region of the Brazilian state of Espírito Santo. Growers who infringe the new law would be fined up to R$16,000 ($10,000).

It says that pesticides sprayed in the region are “highly toxic”, and claims that the ban will not impact on agricultural productivity. The region predominantly grows coffee.
