Brazil mulls re-centralising aerial spraying rules

The Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture is considering switching back to its inspecting the aerial application of pesticides in Brazil, the national association of agricultural aviation companies, the Sindag, says. That would mean revoking last year’s regulation, CGA 01/2011, which passed authority for regulating the activity to individual states, and re-activating the special commission on agricultural aviation affairs, the CEAA. Ministry officials debated the topic with the Sindag president, Nelson Antônio Paim, in December. The Sindag is concerned that many state inspectors lack technical knowledge, and that the new system is damaging business. Mr Paim says that the Ministry had distributed guidelines among the states on how to apply fines in particular cases but did not explain issues such as regulations or guidelines covering companies in the sector. The Sindag complained last year that a ban on aerial applications in one state was based on disinformation ( Agrow No 624, p 15).
