Brazil coffee growers seek faster approvals

Coffee growers in Brazil have appealed to the Minister of Agriculture to fast-track the approval process for a list of pesticide active ingredients. The national coffee council, the CDC, produced a list of 26 ais that are pending approval decisions. The association rates those as required products to combat: coffee borer beetles (Hypothenemus hampei), coffee leaf miners (Leucoptera coffeella), coffee rust (Hemileia vastatrix), Cercospora leaf spot, weeds and nematodes. The CDC is specifically calling for “efficient” herbicides following a decision by EU authorities to cut maximum residue limits of glyphosate in imported coffee.
