FMC’s Locker regains Brazilian approval

FMC has been granted re-authorisation in Brazil of its fungicide, Locker (BASF’s kresoxim-methyl + Bayer CropScience’s tebuconazole + carbendazim) with a higher toxicology classification. It has passed from grade III (indeterminate component of concern) to grade II (medium level of concern). Gradings rise from lowest at grade IV to most toxic at grade I. Locker is for the control of foliar diseases on soybeans. The fungicide is to be re-launched immediately following state re-authorisations, FMC says. Locker was among seven products to have its approval suspended pending a review following complaints of irregularities in their registration (Agrow No 654, p 12). The complaints were of corruption in the evaluation process of the national health surveillance agency, the Anvisa (Agrow No 653, p 22).
