Brazil Ag Minister seeks to cut approval times

The Brazilian Minister of Agriculture is seeking ways to reduce pesticide registration process times, newswire Agrolink reports. It cites the head of the Ministry’s crop health department, Dr Luis Eduardo Pacifici Rangel. He told delegates at the AgrochemShow 2015 that Minister Katia Abreu was “deeply sensitive to the issue of pesticides in Brazil”. She reportedly wants to “increase efficiency” of public bodies. Dr Rangel said that the Ministry was looking at various schemes to reduce processing times including “local studies” and “calling international specialists”. One key initiative would be the restructuring of the Southern Cone plant health committee, the Cosave. Brazil, along with Paraguay, seeks to harmonise pesticide registration procedures with the Southern Cone trading bloc. It includes Argentina and Uruguay along with associate member states. But that route would take time.
