Brazil extends emergency cyantraniliprole use to states

The Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture has extended emergency measures for the control of coffee borer beetles (Hypothenemus hampei) to a second and third state. Espiritu Santo and Sao Paulo states can adopt the use of cyantraniliprole-based insecticides for the control of the pest as laid out in last year's regulation in Portaria 711/14 that declared a state of emergency in Minas Gerais for a year. The regulation authorises import of the active ingredient and establishes its use conditions, including official monitoring. They include foliar application at 175 g ai/ha. The Ministry has issued the extension in the official gazette this week, and it also runs for a year.
