Methamidophos sales end in Brazil

The Brazilian authorities have confirmed the withdrawal from sale of all products based on the insecticide, methamidophos. The national health surveillance agency, the Anvisa, withdrew the active ingredient from its list of approved pesticides last year following a reassessment ( Agrow No 608, p 14). It set a phase-out of sales. The withdrawal of the insecticide was resisted by one of the country’s major domestic pesticide producers, Fersol (Mairinque), for which the active ingredient dominated its sales ( Agrow passim). Methamidophos was used in Brazil on cotton, maize, wheat and processing tomatoes among other crops.
