Discover New Business in Boosting South America Crop Protection Market

South America has played a more and more important role in the global crop protection market. USDA has adjusted its estimation of crop production in Brazil and Argentina during 2011/12 South American growing season and published the estimation of crop production in Brazil and Argentina during 2012/13 South American growing season in May 2012.

It is reported that Brazil would soon secure clearance to ship corn to China, which is expected to become one of the world's biggest importers of the grain, the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture said. At the end of April 2012, China has agreed to import Argentine corn. Brazil is the second corn exporter to China in South America.

As GM corn from Brazil will enter into the Chinese corn market officially in the near future, the increasing demand from China will boost the planting of corn in Brazil, especially the GM corn. Actually, it was the first time for Brazil to promote GM corn varieties in its domestic areas in 2011. This action brought the large success for Brazilian corn planting, greatly increasing its corn production in 2011. According to USDA, the production of corn in Brazil increases to 67.00 million tonnes in 2011 from 57.40 million tonnes in 2010. In 2011, GM corn varieties' proportion has reached 83% of the total corn varieties in Brazil, nearly 50% higher than that of 2010.
