Brasília – Brazil’s government will devise a policy to increase its manufacturing of agricultural fertilizer and minimize reliance on imported products. The country relies for some 80% of its fertilizer needs. An inter-ministerial work group was established to address the topic and met on Tuesday, 9, at Palácio do Planalto.
“Brazil has increased its agricultural output every year but enormously rely on imports of phosphorus and potassium. So, this working group was created,” Agriculture minister Tereza Cristina (pictured above) explained. She addressed the press after a meeting with the National Fertilizer Plan group.
