Brazil: forced break for glyphosate

A court in Brazil has suspended the use of the controversial herbicide Glyphosat, announce this morning the Deutschlandfunk and other sources consistent. According to the decision, new products with the chemical may no longer be registered, existing approvals will be lifted in the next 30 days. The measure will remain in force until the government has decided on the toxicity of glyphosate. The insecticide Abamectin and the anti-fungal agent Thiram should not be used at first. In Brazil, genetically modified varieties of soybeans, corn and cotton are used, which are resistant to glyphosate.
