Also, Brazil is considered to be a market for pesticides, which are banned in other countries. This factor, as well, is expected to be a significant growth driver for the market. However, high cost of agrochemicals, low farmer awareness, and growing demand for food safety and quality are the probable constraining factors for the market.
