Brazilian agchem industry mounts robust defence

The Brazilian pesticide industry has launched a deep and wide-ranging defence of its work and products following press reports and comments from regulators. It has referred to a newspaper report from the end of May highlighting that almost all of the pesticide products that are under assessment in an ongoing regulatory programme in Brazil are banned in other countries ( Agrow No 593, p 17). The newspaper, O Estado de S Paulo, was reporting on the reassessment of 14 pesticides by the Ministry of Health’s national health surveillance agency, the Anvisa.
