Brazil extends earworm control regime in two states

Brazil’s Ministry of Agriculture has extended the emergency control regime against earworms (Helicoverpa armigera) for an extra year in two states. They are in Mato Grosso and Minas Gerais running from January 15th 2015, and November 27th 2014, respectively. The regime includes the use of various measures such as the application of imported emamectin benozoate-based insecticides. States were granted the right to impose emergency measures in October last year. Mato Grosso and Minas Gerais are among several states to impose such measures. States including those two have faced opposition to the emergency approval of the insecticide. A Mato Grosso state federal judge allowed the re-authorisation of emamectin benzoate to control earworms on an emergency basis earlier this year.
