Brazil Anvisa founds agchem monitoring unit

The Brazilian national health surveillance agency, the Anvisa, has formed a working group to improve traceability in the distribution of fruits and vegetables in the country. It seeks to define the regulations in the mapping of growers in order to facilitate the inspection of pesticide use on crops. The agency issued findings last month of its Para residue study for 2011 and 2012 (Agrow No 676, p 22). It showed that 29% of samples contained irregularities of either use of unapproved pesticides on given fruits and vegetables, or residues above maximum residue limits. Findings of unapproved products for use on the crop dominated. That mirrored previous annual analysis reports (Agrow No 630, p 16).
