São Paulo – Brazil’s federal government announced a new National Fertilizer Plan. A decree made public early this week on the Official Gazette mandates the establishment of a work group to devise the strategy.
The Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply said the effort is intended to increase manufacturing and availability of domestically made fertilizer, to minimize reliance on imported product, and to add competitiveness to Brazilian agribusiness products in international markets. According to the Ministry, Brazil relies on imports for some 60% of its fertilizer needs.
