Brazilian Agriculture Ministry seizes agchems

Brazilian authorities seized some 30,000 kgs of Brazilian-formulated pesticides earlier this month. A Ministry of Agriculture operation inspected 17 manufacturers in Sao Paulo state, of which five were found to have irregularities in their formulations or labelling. “The five companies were found to have various irregularities such as labelling, out-of-date products and excess concentrations of active ingredient,” the Ministry’s pesticide co-ordinator general, Luis Eduardo Rangel, says. The operation was “routine” and analysed 92 products, some ready for commercialisation. It follows similar action by the Ministry of Health over the past few months ( Agrow passim), and parliamentary calls for tighter regulations (see this issue).Some 80% of pesticide production in Brazil takes place in the state.
