Brazil judge halts a too toxic acetamiprid

A Brazilian judge has ruled that a pesticide product cannot be marketed if more toxic than another carrying the same active ingredient. The Brazilian agricultural inputs business, CCAB Agro (Sao Paulo), was granted Brazilian registration of a generic version of the insecticide, acetamiprid, for use on cotton, beans and tomatoes last year. An injunction was served against it, which the CCAB attempted to have overturned. The TRF court in Sao Paulo denied the move in late December 2012, as the CCAB’s registration carried a stronger toxicological evaluation. Its product remains suspended, and the insecticide ai’s supply remains limited to one company, Iharabras (Sorocaba), the generic agrochemical industry association, the Aenda, notes. The registration bodies say that the product only requires extra care in its application.
