Brazil glyphosate withdrawal would hit growers

The loss from the Brazilian market of glyphosate herbicide would lead to losses of 20-40% of production depending on weed infestation levels and other factors, national media report. They cite BASF’s innovation manager for South America, Ademar De Geroni. “Without doubt, it would be quite significant.” The comments were in response to the judiciary’s demand that the national health surveillance agency, the Anvisa, conclude its reassessment on the toxicology of the herbicide among other active ingredients by the end of September. He highlights the risk from resistance following any removal of products from the market, and that growers would be without any immediate alternatives. Replacement would require the development of not only a herbicide with a new mode of action, but seed that is tolerant to it that would take 8-10 years, Mr De Geroni warns.
