More adulterated pesticides in Paraguay

Further inspections in Paraguay have found even graver examples of adulterated pesticides, and confirmed previous findings. The plant health and seed quality service, the Senave, says that recent inspections found the worst case as a product named Carbin 80 WP that should have contained the fungicide, carbendazim, with 80% concentration, but which tests showed comprised 25.1% emamectin benzoate insecticide. Since the detection last month of China Agrochemicals' Ceprid 70 containing an active ingredient not mentioned on the label (Agrow No 677, p 19), the service has received 29 samples that have been forwarded to the legal department due to irregularities. They include cases of misrepresentation of ais and of concentration levels.
