Brazil plans public hearing on agchem residues

The Brazilian lower house of Parliament’s agriculture commission is to hold a public hearing to debate government agencies’ monitoring of pesticide residues in foodsuffs. The House of Deputies’ commission has invited the Ministry of Agriculture, the national health surveillance agency, the Anvisa, the public prosecutors’ office, grower associations and the national agrochemical industry trade association, the Sindag, to the hearing. No date has yet been set for the inquiry. The Senate’s agriculture commission recently debated the subject, concluding that there was insufficient co-ordination between government agencies on the monitoring of residues ( Agrow No 637, p 15). The Ministry of Agriculture tests for residues in the field, and the Anvisa for residues in food samples from supermarkets.
