Dow and Horus ink herbicide research deal

The Brazilian environmentalist NGO, Instituto Horus, has agreed a deal with Dow AgroSciences for the use of herbicides in forest restoration research, newspaper Valor Economico reports. The agreement is a key step towards including pesticide use in protected areas, Dow told Valor. There is no legislation in the country prohibiting the use of herbicides in such regions, Horus notes. But a barrier to use is that such products are only approved for agricultural use. Last year, the environmental agency, the Ibama, issued two-year emergency use approvals for the herbicide active ingredients, glyphosate, imazapyr and triclopyr, to control invasive plants in protected nature reserves and “conservation units”. That followed a request from the Brazilian states, Sao Paulo and Santa Catarina. Dow expects to gain registration of three herbicides in the next four years, Valor adds.
