Brazil state to cut soybean insecticide use

The Brazilian state of Parana’s Ministry of Agriculture, the Seab, is seeking to lower the use of insecticides on soybeans. The Seab is considering implementing in the major soybean-growing state, an IPM system that cut insecticide use in the 1980s. It follows a proposal from the Brazilian agricultural research corporation, the Embrapa. The aim is to cut insecticide use on soybeans, maize and wheat by 30%, and increase by 10%, the use of biopesticide controls against velvetbean caterpillars ( Anticarsia gemmatalis).
