Up to 30% of the agrochemicals entering Bolivia come from smuggling

Bolivia does not have an agrochemical production industry, so demand is being met exclusively by imports. In the last three years, smuggling these inputs has increased considerably, representing at least 30% of legal imports. Estimates indicate that this activity has an economic turnover of between $40 and $50 million annually and that, due to poor quality, it can damage or even destroy 100% of the crops.
