Brazil's Caixa Economica offers $681 mln in farm credit
SAO PAULO, April 14 (Reuters) - Brazil's state-run lender Caixa Economica Federal has made 2.1 billion reais ($681 million) in credit available to farmers in the second half of the year, the bank said in a filing Tuesday.
The announcement came after farmers complained about a lack of available credit to buy fertilizers and pesticides for next year's crops.
