Brazil agchem industry call for new ais to replace old

The Brazilian crop protection industry has renewed calls for expedited registrations of new agrochemicals in response to the withdrawal of some older active ingredients by the authorities. A tripartite commission of the country’s agrochemical regulatory agencies has this month set a phase-out by June 30th 2012 of the organophosphate insecticide, methamidophos (see this issue).

Decisions on another eight out of 14 ais in the programme have yet to be issued.
