Paraguay defends new agchem safety rules

The Paraguayan authorities insist that new pesticide use regulations are legal and not in contradiction to competing regulations. The Paraguayan plant health and seed quality service, the Senave, passed Resolution 660 at the end of August. It set new rules, including, among others, that aerial spraying of a product must only take place if it has been explicitly authorised for such use ( Agrow No 624, p 15). The “spirit” of the resulting Resolution is of “protecting society from any potential harm caused by the application of pesticides”, Senave president Dr Miguel Lovera says. He notes various reports claiming competing rules putting the regulation’s force into doubt. The Resolution followed a process stretching over years in which various sectors’ comments and requirements were answered. There has been no abuse of power or persecution of any group, Dr Lovera emphasises.
