Minor crops to gain agchems in Brazil

Minor-crop farmers in Brazil are to gain access to pesticides that are used on other crops under Ministry of Agriculture plans. The Ministry’s director general of pesticides is preparing to issue a regulation on the registration of pesticides for crops with insufficient crop protection support. It intends to introduce the regulation by the end of the year, the national newspaper, O Estado de Sao Paulo, reports. The move is in response to complaints about the lack of products for crops such as fruit, vegetables, legumes, flowers, forage and ornamentals. The process for registering pesticides for use on those crops would often be uneconomic. Each application could cost R$40 million ($20.8 million), the newspaper adds.
