Brazil OKs mesosulfuron-methyl dossier

Brazil’s toxicology authority has approved the dossier for Bayer CropScience’s sulfonylurea herbicide, mesosulfuron-methyl. The national health surveillance agency, the Anvisa, recommended the approval of the active ingredient last month, opening a 30-day public comment period from April 15th. It has not indicated on what crops it should be used. Mesosulfuron-methyl was first launched in France in 2002 as Archipel and Atlantis ( Agrow No 399, p 25). The herbicide was Bayer’s fourth-largest selling active ingredient in 2008 with sales of €244 million ($318 million at the current rate - Agrow No 563, pp 5-7).
