This unique report is fundamental reading for those interested in discovering the regulation and registration processes for pesticides in Brazil.

Brazil's pesticide market is estimated at US$10 billion. Brazil is one of the largest producers and exporters of agricultural crops in the world, planting various tropical and temperate fruits, vegetables and grains. The tropical environment results in many pest and disease problems and requires extensive use of pesticides to maintain productivity. There are calls for the system to be modernized and some steps have been taken towards this.

Key Insights:

  • Brazil's agricultural status
  • Current use and market of pesticides
  • The pesticide registration system
  • Data requirements for registration
  • Registration bottlenecks.
