Brazil biopesticide approval rules to change this year

Rules on the registration of biopesticides in Brazil are to be altered before the end of the year allowing a single approval to cover all crops, media report. The news came from the Ministry of Agriculture's pesticide office co-ordinator, Luis Rangel, in an interview with the business newspaper, Diario do Comercio e Industria. The government is to respond to complaints from biopesticide developers that rules on approvals follow those on chemical products, for which registrations must be gained on a crop by crop basis. The industry wants a general approval for biopesticides across all crops. The authorities accept that as no chemical residues are present, use extensions can be granted on any approval and that such a change "is in the final stages of assessment on health grounds", newswire Agrolink reports.
