Brazil amends emergency emamectin import rules

The Brazilian Agriculture Ministry has altered rules to make the emergency import of emamectin benzoate insecticides for use against corn earworms (Helicoverpa spp) more viable. New controls will cover storage and distribution as well as the acreage to be treated. Rules amend those issued in November last year (Agrow No 662, p 22). They followed a decree granting the Ministry special autonomous powers to permit the use of pesticides that "do not cause grave damage to the environment" due a state of emergency being issued to combat the pest.
