Brazil grants emergency OK to phosphine wood preservative

The Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture has granted emergency authorisation for the sale and use of the insecticidal fumigant, phosphine. It is for use as a wood preservative for quarantine purposes. The national confederation of agriculture, the CNA, has welcomed the approval as timber importers had been demanding it. The approval was made late last month, and extends use from post-harvest treatments of various fruit in ship holds.
