Brazil blocks glyphosate import licences

Brazil is blocking the granting of import licences for the herbicide, glyphosate, from China, because of “low price” concerns, according to the country’s generic agrochemical industry association, the Aenda. At least two companies are seeking licences from the courts after the Ministry of Development’s foreign trade office, the MDIC, rejected applications, it says. The Aenda sees “no legal basis” for the MDIC’s position and stresses the difference in the office’s posture towards imports from Argentina and China. “The MDIC patrols the price of imports from China but not from Argentina, which is exempt from duties and ‘flooding’ the Brazilian market.” Brazil charges a 2.1% anti-dumping duty on glyphosate imports from China ( Agrow No 561, p 13), while Argentina “is exempt from a 12% [general] import tariff”.
