Brazil to launch organic crop growing drive

The Brazilian government is launching a national organic crop production plan next month. The Ministries of Agriculture, Development and of the Environment are co-ordinating actions to promote the take up of organic crop farming and the consumption of organic produce. It has been promoting the sector through over 180 nationwide events this month. They are informing growers of the available inputs for use in organic crop farming. The country has some 11,000 licensed organic crop farms, and the 2006 census revealed some 90,000 growers in the sector. Government has been promoting the use of organics since last year (Agrow No 648, p 15), and the authorities have approved several biological pesticides as a priority for such use in recent years (Agrow passim).
