Brazil Anvisa OKs parasitoid wasps on organic crops

The Brazilian national health surveillance agency, the Anvisa, has approved the use of the parasitoid wasp, Trichogramma platneri, on organic crops for the control of Tuta absoluta, Helicoverpa zea, Spodoptera frugiperda, Anticarsia gemmatalis, and Pseudoplusia includens. The country added the wasp to its reference specifications of pesticides for use in organic crop production last year (Agrow No 672, p 22). The setting of a reference specification precedes the registration application for a plant protection product for use on organic crops.
