Brazil state reverts to agchem sale/use monitoring

The Brazilian state of Maranhao has replaced its half-yearly pesticide controls system, the Sisagro, with a return to monitoring the sale and use of products. The Sisagro system made distributors responsible for sending reports through a web-based system, enabling it to detail accounts of the supply, sale and resale of pesticides. It was pioneered in the state of Minas Gerais some five years ago (Agrow No 632, p 14). The Maranhao plant health department, the Aged, initiated training last month among its inspectors to return to direct monitoring under its "integrated pesticide sales controls system", the Sicca. The Aged claims that a "total control system" will become enabled that more efficiently quantifies all stocks entering and being distributed around the state.
