Brazil Anvisa OKs ipconazole

The Brazilian national health surveillance agency, the Anvisa, has recommended the commercial authorisation of Kureha’s fungicide, ipconazole, as a seed treatment on maize and soybeans. Full national registration of the active ingredient requires the approval of the environmental agency, the Ibama, and the Ministry of Agriculture. The Anvisa approval is subject to a 30 day comment period. The agency issued its decision on July 4th. The broad-spectrum fungicide seed treatment was approved in the US in 2008 ( Agrow No 558, p 21). Chemtura has a global agreement with Kureha for the development and commercialisation of the product for seed treatment uses ( Agrow No 512, p 1).
