Brazil OKs sugar cane nematode dossier

Brazil’s toxicology authority has approved the dossier for the entomopathogenic nematode, Steinernema puertoricense. The national health surveillance agency, the Anvisa, has approved the biocontrol agent for use on sugar cane. It comes as an aqueous solution in a polyurethane sponge. The nematodes are inoculated with the bacterium, Xenorhabdus nematophila. The Anvisa has also recommended the approval of a plant growth regulator derived from the kelp, Ecklonia maxima, as a foliar application for use on cotton, maize and soybeans. It will be added to the list of authorised substances pending a 30-day comment period from May 26th.
