Brazil state to dispose of 30-yr old agchems

Brazilian state Sao Paulo’s government is launching a campaign to collect obsolete and/or banned pesticides. It involves the collection of pesticides banned as far back as the 1980s, newspaper O Globo reports. Farmers who have stored chemicals “as they have not known what else to do with them” are to register stocks, and wait for government to collect and deal with its “suitable destination”. The Sao Paulo Agriculture secretariat explains that “when these pesticides were banned back in the 1980s, there were no set procedures to deal with their disposal. The removal of the stocks is expected to commence in September after the authorities have dealt with identifying the stocks to be disposed and have planned the logistics operations, the newspaper adds.
