Brazil agchem industry wants faster approvals

Brazilian agrochemical industry representatives called on the authorities to speed up pesticide registrations at the monthly meeting between regulators and the industry. Eduardo Daher, executive director of the agrochemical industry association, the Andef, said that Brazilian agriculture was enjoying growth and that “structures” needed to keep pace. He noted particularly the slow pace of new active ingredient registrations, while pointing to the emergence of new pests. “Technicians and regulators from [the Ministry of] Agriculture have raised alerts of the presence of new pests in the country, the control of which requires the urgent approval of products,” he said. “The sluggishness in registration is holding back the agricultural economy with knock-on effects for the whole Brazilian economy,” he complained. The Andef chief spoke at the Ministry of Agriculture’s chamber of agricultural inputs, the CTIA, meeting in late November.
