Brazilian organic crop farmers seek EU markets

A delegation of organic crop farmers from Brazil is in Germany for the Biofach fair, seeking more markets for Brazilian organic produce. Such produce is growing by 20-30% a year, the national society of agriculture, the SNA, says. It is supporting the delegation through the project, OrganicsNet. There are no official figures on the size of the Brazilian organic sector, the official news agency, Agencia Brasil, says. The SNA estimates that 19,000 farmers are in the sector. The use of an official stamp recognising organic crop production in Brazil is under public consultation until March 17th, the Ministry of Agriculture says. The use of an official stamp is expected to be in place in the first half of 2010, and famers would have to register as organic crop producers by December 29th 2009.
