Brazil OKs over 100 agchem brands in 2009

Brazil approved 138 brands of pesticides in 2009, of which 75 were generic products, the Ministry of Agriculture says. Its register, the Agrofit, holds 1,400 registrations and 650 of those are on the market. The co-ordinator of the registration department, Dfia/SDA, Luis Rangel, notes that 70% of marketed products are generics and 30% have been approved through the UN FAO equivalence registration system. The system allows manufacturers to present non-original documentation in support of applications to demonstrate the similarity of a product to an already approved pesticide. The generic agrochemical industry association, the Aenda, says that 151 branded pesticides on the market covering 113 active ingredients are equivalence-approved products. The Ministry registers some 60 generic products a year, the majority for use on citrus fruits, cotton, maize, soybeans and sugar cane.
