Brazilian nine-month agrochemical sales up 35%:

Industry estimates of agrochemical sales in Brazil for the first nine months of the year are up by 34.9% at R$5,216 million ($2,613 million). This year's figures represent a rise of 11% on the same period in 2005 after falls last year, the Brazilian agrochemical industry trade union, the Sindag, says. Increased plantings of sugar cane, cotton, soybeans and out-of-season maize have driven the growth. Purchases have been brought forward due to high commodity prices and lower pesticide prices, the Sindag told Agrow. Agrochemical prices fell by 15% in the first eight months of the year compared with the corresponding period in 2006, according to the Brazilian state of Sao Paulo's Agriculture Ministry. Two months ago, industry sources predicted a 25% rise in sales to $5,000 million for the year (Agrow No 530, p 18).
