Brazil state extends old agchem reporting

Brazilian state Sao Paulo authorities have extended the deadline for farmers to declare their stocks of obsolete pesticides. Farmers have until July 24th, rather than the original March 26th deadline, the state’s environmental agency, the Cetesb, says. Reporting of obsolete stocks of products from as far back as the 1980s to the authorities is compulsory as is their safe storage until they have been collected or returned. An unfinished report shows that 50.7 tonnes of such products have been declared in the state. No penalties will be conferred on those making full declarations by the new deadline. The government launched a campaign to clear up out-of-date pesticides earlier this year ( Agrow No 638, p 22).
