Argentina suspends agchem imports

The Argentine government has ordered the suspension of pesticide imports into the country. Minister of Trade Guillermo Moreno has ordered agrochemical suppliers to halt all imports for a week, national media report. Newspaper La Nación reports one company claiming that the words of the Minister were robust, threatening that there would “be sanctions” against any imports until November 21st. The call is a repetition of earlier government moves, it adds. A few months ago, Minister of Industry Débora Giorgi called for suppliers to increase production “to compensate for [the level of] imports”. Annual pesticide use is valued at $2,000 million, while product and active ingredient imports were at $1,200 million. There is an estimated 30% shortfall in pesticide supplies against volume requirements, the newspaper understands.
