Brazil Approved 21 Me-too Technical Pesticides

Brazil Approved 21 Me-too Technical PesticidesOn July 9th, the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply(MAPA) released the ministerial Act 39 on the Official Gazette, announcing the registration of 21 technical grade active ingredients including Dicamba, Bifenthrin, Azoxystrobin, Diquat, Cyproconazole, Mesotrione, Tebuconazole, Thiamethoxam and Imidacloprid.

These me-too products were said to be analyzed and approved by MAPA, IBAMA and ANVISA following the scientific criteria and in line with the best international practices. But citizens criticized that Dicamba and Bifenthrin were already banned or under intense scrutiny in the US and EU, plus the neonicotinoid insecticide thiamethoxam, which has been linked to harmful effects on bees and subject to restriction in other countries.

18 out of the 21 products were graded to be “highly toxic to the environment”-Class II under Brazil’s environmental hazard rating criteria, but their health hazard ratings were hidden by the new form by the ANVISA- “The toxicological profile was considered equivalent to the referenced technical product”.

It was also the first time that China and India dominate the production of these pesticides. Coupled with the 21 pesticides registered this time, the number of pesticides registered is 206 in 2020 and 709 in the recent 18 months.
