The president of the Rural Union of Luis Eduardo Magalhães, Vanir Kölln, received on Friday, experts in environmental law and environmental solutions that have talked about the use of new parameters of Environmental Forest Code, especially those concerning the allocation areas collective legal reserve by producers. John Henry Giometti Bertogna, the Furlanetto and Bertogna office, São Paulo, and Leandro Aranha, CEO of Geoflorestas Environmental Solutions, also the state capital, spoke about the benefits of the producers buy these reserves together the parks which incorporated thereto, would be under the care of government technicians.
In 2.2 million hectares cultivated in the West, according to Vanir, there is an environmental liability that can use the new parameter. He pointed out that in Brazil, 12% of the territory belongs to indigenous areas, with only 11% devoted to agriculture and soybean occupying only 2.8% of the area.
-Imagine If this country doubled soybean area to 5.6%. Would the domain of vegetable protein market in the world. That the Americans do not want. So forcing environmental authorities to dictate standards as the preservation of 20% in legal reserves, a percentage that reaches 35% in the Cerrado of the Legal Amazon, and even 80% in the Atlantic Forest. The alternative of creating collective legal reserve areas is to minimize this imposition.
And it concludes:
-It’s More practical to integrate a collective reserve, which can be transformed into state or federal park and stay under the care of the environmental authorities, than to keep a small reserve, isolated, individual and requires special care for which the farmer You can not be prepared.
Bertogna, in turn, says that adaptation can be paramount to the registration of the producer in the Rural Environmental Registry, by the deadline of May 5, 2015, without which the official agencies are unable to finance the producer and the trading prevented buying production.
