Brazilian group to remove obsolete agchems

A Brazilian public-private venture is working to withdraw out-of-date and banned pesticides from the market, national newswire Canarural reports. Some 210 tonnes of obsolete and “unfit for use” products were withdrawn from Brazilian farms in 2009. The results came from retailers, producers, co-operatives and public bodies. The responsibility for such products lies with the pesticide industry, the newswire notes. But that has caused difficulties when some pesticides have been banned and the supplier companies have closed. Even unused and stored products can cause environmental damage. The new group was formed less than a year ago to address the problem. Disposal organisation inpEV director Joao Rando reportedly says that Parana state gave farmers until November last year to register for the service, which is being rolled out to Sao Paulo state.
