Bionematicide the great hope for Brazil soy

A bionematicide progressing through the final stages of the registration process has been called "the great hope" for Brazilian soybean growers. That is the calculation of the Ministry of Agriculture’s pesticide office co-ordinator, Luis Eduardo Rangel. The Ministry, along with two other agencies, is assessing the bionematicide, Nemat (Paecilomyces lilacinus 30%). The application came from Ballagro Agro Tecnologia (Bom Jesus dos Perdões), according to national media. Its product is a wettable powder formulation.  The authorities "are interested in approving the pesticide, mainly because it is less harmful [than alternative products] to the environment," Mr Rangel says. The Ministry wants to widen the supply of biological pesticides, doubling their share of registered products to 10% by 2015 (Agrow No 645, p 17).
