Brazil approves PHC’s protein technology

Brazil has approved the sale and use of the US-based, UK-listed bioproducts company, Plant Health Care’s (PHC), proprietary harpin protein technology for foliar application on all crops. The approval marks the first product registration in Brazil from the Ministry of Agriculture, the company notes. Arysta LifeScience has entered into a development and distribution agreement with PHC for foliar applications on sugar cane in the country. PHC says that it will invoke that deal. Arysta agreed to evaluate the current protein technology across a range of geographical locations throughout Brazil and generate detailed data on increased biomass and sucrose production. Results have been positive, and pending consistent and reliable test results in the evaluation programme, first sales of the product in Brazil are anticipated in the 2017 crop season. The technology is approved for usage in 12 countries, including the US.
