Argentina awaits ruling on crop pesticides

Communities vulnerable to pesticide exposure have rallied against the use of agrochemicals near their homes.

    Campaigners in Argentina are waiting for an important ruling on the use of chemical sprays by soya bean producers.

    Activists from some poor communities have rallied for a decade in the belief that the pesticides are affecting their health.

    The Latin American nation is the world’s third-largest soybean exporter and its economy is highly dependent on it.
