Argentine council restricts agchem spraying

The Argentine city council of Rio Cuarto has forbidden the aerial spraying of pesticides within 800 m of its urban limits, including in areas considered rural, according to regional news reports. That brings to at least 18 the number of localities in Cordoba state that have implemented rules restricting pesticide aerial application, reports say. Campaigners in Rio Cuarto had been seeking a ban on such spraying up to 1 km from the limits. One councillor in the city chamber reportedly noted last month that fruit and vegetable growing areas would come under more rigorous soil testing, while goals had been set to move towards organic crop production within eight years. He further noted that crop growers close to the restricted areas would have to request a “land use licence”, that could be granted under various conditions upon a series of impact studies.
