Brazil OKs five emergency use extensions

The Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture has approved the emergency use extension for three chemical pesticide active ingredients and two biopesticides. They are for the control of corn earworms ( Helicoverpa zea) on cotton in the state of Bahia. The Ministry granted restricted use authorisation to DuPont’s insecticide, chlorantraniliprole (trade-marked as Rynaxypyr), and indoxacarb, as well as BASF’s chlorfenapyr. It added similar approvals to the biopesticides, Bacillus thuringiensis and the H zea nuclear polyhedrosis virus. The move followed negotiations among the Ministries of Environment and Health as well as that of Agriculture. Minister of Agriculture Mendes Ribeiro has appointed the agricultural research corporation, the Embrapa, to monitor the regime.
