Brand prices can be lower than for generics in Costa Rica
Some generic pesticide products are more expensive than branded pesticides in Costa Rica, according to an official study. The Ministry of Agriculture’s national plant health inspection service, the SFE, analysed a list of 20 products on the market as part of an anticipated pesticide prices inspection and monitoring programme in the country. The study was to compare the prices of branded and generic products based on the same active ingredient. Generic products are more expensive for some ais, the SFE finds.
