Brazil suspends four insecticides over bee concerns

Brazil has issued a precautionary ban on the application of four insecticides on cotton or winter crops within 300 m of cotton fields in the flowering staqe. The environmental agency, the Ibama, and the Ministry of Agriculture’s plant health office, the SDA, have imposed the bans on the neonicotinoids, imidacloprid, thiamethoxam and clothianidin, and the phenylpyrazole, fipronil, until the conclusion of the Ibama’s reassessment of the active ingredients. The move is motivated by concerns over bee health from the insecticides.
