Brazil Ag Ministry accredits BASF trial facility

The Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture has accredited BASF’s advanced experimental centre, CEA/BASF. The company carries out pesticide efficacy, phytotoxicity and residue trials at the facility in Ponta Grossa, Parana state, for completing dossiers for registration purposes. Project integration manager at BASF Gilberto Fernando Velho welcomes the Ministry’s approval. “This will speed up the compilation of registration dossiers and facilitate the carrying out of trials on region-specific conditions,” he says. CEA/BASF covers 12 ha and has an annual capacity to carry out some 110 trials. It will also be used to assess BASF’s AgCelence branded products, marketed as providing benefits beyond crop protection, such as tolerance to stress. The centre is part of a network of four facilities the company has in Brazil.
