Colombian farmers mixed on agrochemical prices
More than four out of ten (42%) Colombian farmers see a good cost/benefit relationship in pesticide use, CropLife Latin America says. It cites a government commissioned survey from the research group, the cattle and crop research centre, the CEGA. The findings show that a majority of flower, sugar cane, African palm oil and plantain producers considered the cost/benefit relationship to be -good", the association adds. Cotton, rice, maize, soybean and sorghum farmers are generally pessimistic on the issue, the study finds.
