Brazil to register organic crop farmers

The Brazilian government is to register all organic crop farmers. It aims to discover the extent of such farming in fruit, vegetables, honey, legumes as well as in other areas. The government has also established criteria for crops to be granted the official “organic produce” stamp. The production chain has until December this year to meet the requirements. The Ministry of Agriculture’s co-ordinator of organic farming, Rogerio Dias, says the government is to promote the extension of non-pesticide crop production. “We are setting up a protocol with the Ministries of Science and Education to create a core of organic agriculture in schools and universities, adding organic meals into school dinners as the next step,” Mr Dias says. “The government is also paying 30% extra for organic products through institutional purchasing,” he adds.
