Brazil confirms sugar cane extensions

Brazil’s national health surveillance agency, the Anvisa, has confirmed use extensions on sugar cane for: the fungicide, metalaxyl-M; the insecticide/nematicide, cadusafos; and the insecticide, thiamethoxam. It recommended the use extensions last year ( Agrow No 582, p 21). Industry sources say that the agency has also approved the use of the insecticide, lufenuron, on sugar cane as a foliar application, while recommending a use extension on the same crop for the fungicide, fludioxonil. The lufenuron extension was subject to public comments from October last year. It was already approved on several crops including cotton, citrus fruit, maize, soybeans and wheat. The recommendation for fludioxonil is as an “industrial treatment of vegetative seedlings before planting, and is subject to a 30-day comment period. It is already approved in seed treatments on eight crops, including cotton, maize and soybeans.
