Brazil police haul a tonne of fake agchems

Adulterated versions of four major insecticide brands, amounting to almost a tonne of illegal pesticides, were apprehended last month, the Brazilian generic agrochemical association, the Aenda, reports. They were: BASF’s fipronil-based insecticides, Regent and Standak, Bayer CropScience’s Cropstar (imidacloprid + thiodicarb), and Dow AgroSciences’ Tracer (spinosad). BASF recently won a patent infringement case against the use of its fipronil insecticide in Brazil (see this issue).
