Brazil court rejects appeal against emamectin use

A Brazilian court has rejected an appeal by the public prosecutor’s office contesting a legal decision to allow the approval of the insecticide, emamectin benzoate, in the major soybean-growing Mato Grosso state. The case went to a panel at the TRF court of the first region. It rejected the office’s request. A state federal judge had allowed the re-authorisation of the import and use of the insecticide to control corn earworms (Helicoverpa armigera) on an emergency basis in the state on the request of the Ministry of Agriculture. That followed the presentation of evidence in support of the insecticide’s use by the national Ministry of Agriculture and the agricultural research corporation, the Embrapa. The prosecutor brought the case in June and sought import as well as use bans.
