Whats happening in Chile

05 February 2015

According to the latest Chilean survey carried out in November last year by SAG: Servicio Agrícola y Ganadero (Agricultural and Livestock Service), Psa has progressed further north from the Maule region into the O’Higgins region (previously not infected).

Three Chilean regions are now Psa positive:

  • Biobio – 15% of national production
  • Maule – 38% of national production (including 71% of Gold production)
  • O’Higgins – 36% of national production

SAG is the official Chilean State body responsible for supporting the development of Chile’s agriculture, forestry, and livestock industries by protecting and enhancing plant and animal health. They conduct annual surveys in November to report on the national progression of Psa.
