BASF wins injunction in Brazil

BASF has won an injunction against the use by a Brazilian company of its proprietary insecticide, fipronil, in the country. A Brazilian court ordered the injunction late last month against the agrochemical company, Dexter Latina Industria e Comercio de Productos Quimica (Sao Jose dos Pinhais, Parana). Dexter Latina had used fipronil in its insecticide product, Master Gel Fipronil. The injunction prohibits the company from importing, manufacturing, using, marketing or offering the active ingredient for sale in any form. Infringement of the injunction would carry a daily penalty of R$30,000 ($17,870), BASF says.
