Brazil growers show mounting concern on agchem costs

Rising agricultural input costs account for the major worry among most Brazilian farmers, according to researchers in the country. The concern rose from third major worry in the last quarter of 2014 to jump above weather and the lack of qualified rural workers, growers told the Sao Paulo federation of industry, the Fiesp’s agriculture division, and Brazilian co-operatives organisation, the OCB. Rising costs was mentioned by 55% of growers as a major concern against 53% and 34%, respectively, for the other two principal cares. The rising dollar lies behind much of the concern with higher costs. Nevertheless, two out of three growers intend to raise their spending on input technology with 47% citing higher agrochemical investments.
