Brazil soy group urges early agchem use

Soybean growers in Brazil’s major soybean producing state should increase fungicide applications against Asian soybean rust ( Phakopsora pachyrhizi), national newswire agrodebate reports. The state of Mato Grosso’s soybean grower association, the Aprosoja, reckons that at least two applications will be required on the first germinating plants for the 2012/13 season. “Farmers will need to be vigilant as there is generally insufficient attention paid to precocious soybeans,” Aprosoja technical manager Nery Ribas says. Ministry of Agriculture officials echo the concern. Officials are to visit 400 farms in the state over the next two weeks to monitor applications, the newswire adds. Brazilian soybean farmers are to plant a record area this season, according to official estimates (see this issue).
