Agribusiness says that without Herbicide target of controversy with Monsanto, there is no crop in Brazil

BRASILIA and SÃO PAULO-on the eve of the planting of the crop 2018/19, the productive sector claims to be infeasible to start the work without the use of glyphosate – agricultural herbicide, in recent days, was again the subject of controversy. Last week, a California jury ordered Monsanto to pay restitution of $ $289.2 million to a man who claims to have contracted cancer because of exposure to an herbicide with glyphosate produced by the company. With it, the Federal Court in the Federal District has suspended the registration of asset-based products from September 3 until the national health surveillance Agency (Anvisa) complete Toxicology re-evaluation. It is expected that the Solicitor-General of the Union (AGU) refer the decision, using as grants information of Ministry of agriculture, until next week. Monsanto Bayer Monsanto Products protests are target of protest photo: GEORGES GOBET/AFP "No glyphosate has no crop in Brazil," said the President of the Association of Soy and corn-producing state of Mato Grosso (Aprosoja-MT), Antonio Galvan. He recalls that the Brazil adopts the tillage system, which is the seeding of new crop directly after harvest of the previous. With the withdrawal of corn crops in the field, which should be finalized later this month, glyphosate is played to eliminate plant cover or the weeds that are on the ground in preparation for the planting of soybeans in Brazil, which starts in September. Either way, the producer avoids having to cut that coverage and turn over the soil, taking advantage of the remaining organic matter such as natural fertilizer. "Today don't know producer plant otherwise unless this," says Galvan. The Superintendent of the Organization of cooperatives of Paraná, Robson Mafioletti, reinforces the assessment: "if it's forbidden, brazilian modern agriculture, with zero tillage and sustainability, it was," he said. "We are fully confident that this decision will be reversed." Mafioletti remember that glyphosate is today in the so-called green range of pesticides, to less toxic products in the event of misapplication. "Without the glyphosate, Brazil would have a hard time making the cultivation of 35 million hectares in the 2018/19." Court decision On decision in DF, the federal judge Azrina Tolentino de Moura CITES technical note issued by Fundação Oswaldo Cruz about the health risk caused by pesticides. "So much for workers exposed to these substances as for consumers of treated crops and for the general population, which require a detailed assessment for registration". In your report, the magistrate States that, although the Anvisa still consider little toxic substance glyphosate, studies conducted by federal authority itself concluded that the glyphosate treatment showed a significant increase of "freaks "chromosome, among other details. She also States that the Anvisa is the responsible body within the Ministry of health for assessing the toxicity of pesticides and their impact on human health, which also instructs an opinion favorable or unfavorable Toxicology to the granting of registration the Ministry of agriculture. According to the Court's ruling is Galvan, disrupting the distribution of the product in Mato Grosso. "Companies are not making money and delivering product in resales, and resales fail to deliver because producers understand that would be suspended and that sales could suffer penalties," he said. "From September 16 is released the planting soybeans in Mato Grosso. If you don't have glyphosate on the farm, which is one of the first products that will use, there may be delay in planting and compromising crop. " The Sindiveg backlash said, by way of note, that the decision of the Federal Court in Brasilia "anticipates the results of revaluation of the competent organ" and "it curtails the right of companies that sell products based on these assets to the legal process". "We are evaluating the impacts for the brazilian agriculture sector which brings together some of the most important economic activities of the country and that, in 2017, reaped record grain harvest with 13% growth, influencing the increment of 1% of the Brazilian GDP", He said the syndicate. The group for information and research on Glyphosate (Gipeg) said it was "necessary that the Anvisa finalize re-evaluation of glyphosate", but "the decision to ask the Union to suspend the new and already granted glyphosate-based products did not consider the product insurance history, as well as hundreds of studies and international regulatory decisions also confirm your security. " "In addition, this decision also disregarded the tremendous impact on Agriculture and the environment of Brazil, which has no workaround for sustainable agricultural production without the use of glyphosate." As to the indemnity in the U.S., Monsanto says it will appeal and will continue to defend the product. "The decision (...) doesn't change the fact that more than 800 scientific studies and analysis – and conclusions of the environmental protection agency of the United States, the national institutes of health and American regulatory authorities around the world – support the fact that glyphosate does not cause cancer, and wasn't the cause of the cancer of the Mr Johnson ", says the company note./Colaboraram Camila Turtelli and Anna Carolina Papp
