Minor-crop agchem use ideas mulled in Brazil

Proposals are being submitted to the national meeting to take place on November 6th at the national health surveillance agency, the Anvisa,in Brasilia. Parana state regulators including Agriculture Minister Norberto Ortigara met in late October with agronomists and farmer groups to consider various alternatives to implement national Instruction Normative 01/2010 regulation on minor-crop pesticide use, which was issued two years ago ( Agrow No 587, p 20).
