Brazil govt to subsidise organic crop schemes

The Brazilian government is to subsidise organic crop farming projects to the tune of R$8.9 million (US$4.4 million). Funds and resources will come from the Ministries of Science and Technology, Agriculture, and of Education “to help build widespread ecological practices”. More than half the funds will emanate from the former. The national scientific and technology development council, the CNPq, will select which projects to finance. Proposals to it are to be sent by November 19th. The initiative was issued in the official gazette on October 5th. Brazilian authorities launched a national organic crop production strategy, Pnapo, earlier this year seeking more rational use of public resources for the sector as part of wider help to raise the sector’s market share ( Agrow No 648, p 15).
