Three new active ingredients were registered in the beginning of the year in Brazil. These are the insecticide/acaricide “tolfenpyrad”, the herbicide “thiencarbazone-methyl” and the fungicide “fenpyrazamine”.

In addition to these unprecedented molecules, another 29 technical products, or so-called generics, received authorization and registration from the Department of Plant Health and Agricultural Inputs, a body linked to the Secretariat for Agricultural Defense of the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (MAPA).

The releases were published in the Federal Official Gazette through Act No. 71. The technical products use active ingredients already registered and already being used within the Brazilian national territory.

“The products were registered in the Act in 2020. As these are technical products, none of these 32 registered products will be available for purchase by farmers. Technical products are chemicals with a high degree of purity and active ingredient concentration. The function of a technical product is to later be used as a component in the production of formulated products (which are the products actually marketed to the rural producer),” MAPA explained in a statement.

According to government information, the products were analyzed and approved by both MAPA and the Brazilian Institute of the Environment and Renewable Natural Resources (Ibama) and the National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa). For this, scientific criteria were analyzed and aligned as per the best international practices. Last year, 172 technical products were registered in Brazil.
