SAN VICENTE, MISIONES, ARGENTINA - NOVEMBER, 2012: Candida Rogriguez plays with her son Fabián inside their house. Fabián Rodgriguez suffers from hydrocephalus. The name of his mom is Candida Rodriguez and, just like his husband, she works in the Tobacco industry. They always use agrochemical products for the cultivation of their fields, following the guidelines set out by the cooperatives of large local producers, who require the use of such agrochemicals as a condition precedent to the purchase of their crop. Among the agrochemicals required we find Gliphosate and 2,4 D, a product derived from the Agent Orange. The financial costs of these products always fall on small producers, who only retain 40% of the value of the crop, which is unilaterally fixed by the cooperatives of large producers.
