Brazil state invests in organics

The Brazilian state of Parana is to set up 30 organic farming centres in order “to cause a lower environmental impact”. The state government is promoting the project with R$1,000 million ($580,000) funding. The state’s Environment Minister, Rasca Rodrigues, says that the regional government intends to preserve areas of the state from some agricultural practices. “We will continue to prioritise the work of recovering reserves and forest land, which in the ‘biodiversity corridors’ alone amounts to 133,000 ha,” he says. The centres will be co-operative enterprises, where farmers will receive resources and training on “sustainable” agriculture practice, adopting measures such as biological pest control, the state’s official news agency, Agencia Estadual de Noticias, reports.
