Brazil state to enforce 60-day cotton fallow

Cotton planting in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais has been banned for two months between harvests from next year. The isolation policy will run from August 20th to October 20th 2010, and is to aid in boll weevil ( Anthonomus grandis) control. The state’s Ministry of Agriculture issued resolution 1021 at the end of September to establish the measure. The Ministry expects 14,785 ha to be planted with cotton in the state this year. A similar policy for the planting of soybeans to fight the spread of Asian soybean rust ( Phakopsora pachyrhizi) has been widely adopted across Brazil ( Agrow No 538, p 21).
