Brazil’s National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa) announced to have cleaned up the line of registration of agrochemical products of original biological products for the use either in conventional agriculture or in organic agriculture. The goal, according to the official agency, is to “promote the expansion of the use of biological products and to reduce the use of agrochemicals with more toxicity”.

"Anvisa has held several efforts to meet the determination of the Decree 4074of January 4, 2002, dealing with priority the analysis of the applications related to the biological products. All submitted claims to date for products intended for organic agriculture were analyzed, which means there is no application for registration in the queue, awaiting at the agency the toxicological evaluation of the formulated phytosanitary product,” explained the agency.

According to Anvisa, the registration of biological products is one of the priorities of the federal government. “From the human health point of view, the biological controls are the safest alternatives for the control of agricultural plagues. There are technologies that use the natural enemies of the plagues, which are less aggressive to human beings and represent an important alternative to reduce production costs,” added the agency.
