Two more Brazil states gain emergency earworm controls

The Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture has declared a state of emergency in a further two states due to an infestation of corn earworms (Helicoverpa spp). The states of Goias and Minas Gerais join those of Bahia and Mato Grosso, which were recently granted similar status (Agrow No 660, p 19). The whole of Goais and many of the counties of Minas Gerais can implement controls detailed in October's presidential decree. They include the import from certain countries of emamectin benzoate insecticides (Agrow No 677, p 17). The state of Piaiu has issued its own state of emergency against the pest and requested official national recognition from the Ministry (Agrow No 676, p 20).
