Spain to modernise agchem inspections

The Spanish Ministry of agriculture is to set up an electronic pesticide product sales logging system with a centralised database, national newswire Agrodigital reports. It aims to use the scheme to implement various programmes, including: product inspections, from retailers to storage warehouses, taking in traceability of sales, label checks, approved formulation stocks, and the marketing of registered products; tackling illegal product trafficking, with inspections stretching across the product chain; and setting up an inspection programme to ensure correct application of products. The Ministry has set a goal of reaching 20% of registered stores a year, and so have inspected all within five years. It plans 5,000 “control actions” on farmers, and 500 on pesticide application companies, while collecting 1,500 plant, soil and water samples. The efforts are part of the action plan agreed with industry in the summer ( Agrow No 644, p 10).
