Brazil detains more Milenia Podos

Brazilian authorities have apprehended a further 36,000 litres of the plant growth regulator, Podos (flumetralin). The national health surveillance agency seized 2,500 tonnes of four pesticides, including Podos, at the end of last month, following raids at two facilities of the Makhteshim-Agan Industries subsidiary Milenia Agrociências ( Agrow No 571, p 17). The agency found they contained unauthorised formulations, and suspended their sale and production for 90 days. The latest action came at the facility at Taquari, Rio Grande do Sul state. The agency had the production line shut down.
