Industry to supply cheaper cereal agchems in Venezuela

Agrochemical companies in Venezuela are to supply the main pesticides used on cereals at a lower price for this winter season, the agrochemical industry association, the Afaquima, says. The move is part of the Ministry of Agriculture’s integrated agricultural development plan, the PIDA. Pesticides for use on maize, rice and sorghum were made available at a “special offer” on April 15th. The offer will continue throughout the country’s winter cycle season, Afaquima executive director Amparo Ruiz says. The initiative is to “compensate for rising production costs for cereals”, Mr Ruiz adds.
