Brazil Ag Ministry seizes illegal agchems

Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture inspectors have seized 11 tonnes and 1,500 litres of pesticides following an investigation of unnamed Sao Paulo-based establishments selling pesticides and other agricultural inputs. The companies did not hold registrations at the Ministry to manufacture or sell the products. The operations were carried out by the Ministry’s inspection offices, the Sefia and the Sefip, at two locations on August 31st and September 1st. The Ministry’s pesticide office co-ordinator, Luis Rangel, rates the action as significant. “It is important to curb the proliferation of unregistered companies in the sectors controlled by the Ministry, and we will carry out such operations whenever we receive allegations or notice such irregularities within our field,” he says.
