Brazil state soybean agchem sales ahead

Pesticide sales are advancing at the fastest rate in years among Brazil state Matto Grosso’s soybean farmers. Mato Grosso agricultural market researcher body Imea says that 65% of the required pesticides for the 2012/13 season have already been acquired. That compares with 52% for each of the last two planting seasons at this stage. Similarly, sales have advanced more quickly for seed and fertiliser. Soybean grower association Aprosoja president Carlos Fávaro expects a 5% rise in plantings of the crop, on the back of the incorporation of pasture land. The association notes that “serious losses” were suffered in the last season due to weather and outbreaks of Asian soybean rust ( Phakopsora pachyrhizi), and that losses in other states, notably Parana, were even more serious.
