Second Brazil state mulls agchem IT system

The Brazilian state, Rio Grande do Sul, is considering the introduction of its own pesticide use and registration system. Officials from the state’s Ministries of Agriculture, Rural Development, and Health and the public prosecutor’s office met with associations and an agronomist from Parana state’s Ministry of Agriculture, who presented the system that is already in force in Parana. The pesticide use and registration system, the Siagro, was launched last year ( Agrow No 597, p 20). The computerised data collection system logs all pesticide sales within the state, improving the traceability of products. It replaced a paper-based system, allowing for speedier verification of infestations of crops and improved diagnostics for pesticide use. If Rio Grande do Sul adopts the system, only state-certified professionals would be allowed to make agronomic receipts, while pesticides would only be sold by outlets registered at the state Agriculture Office.
