No glyphosate ban from September in Brazil

A Brazilian court has overturned a lower court ruling ordering it to refrain from using any herbicide containing glyphos. Yesterday, the Brazilian Minister of Agriculture Blairo Maggi tweeted.
On 3 August, a ruling was passed in Brazil that, as of September, all new and marketed glyphos-containing agrochemicals should no longer be used until the health authority of the South American country has established the safety of the chemical.
If this judgment had to be applied, Brazil would be the first country in which a total ban on glyphosate would apply. The result would be that exports of agricultural commodities from Brazil would lose $ 25 billion and import 44 million tons of food. So the verdict of the Brazilian Federal Court.
The manufacturer of glyphosate, the company Monsanto, was bought in spring by the German Bayer AG. In 2015, the World Health Organization (WHO) classified glyphosate as "probably carcinogenic to humans".Last year in the EU, a qualified majority of member states extended the approval of glyphosate. In the United States, hundreds of cancer sufferers sue Monsanto for damages.
