Brazilian Court Overturns Glyphosate Ban

A Brazilian court on Monday ruled to overturn a ban on glyphosate, as well as abamectin and thiram, according to a Reuters report.

Judge Kássio Marques, of the regional federal court of the first district in Brasilia, based the ruling suspending last month’s injunction on the government’s argument that banning glyphosate and the other two agrichemicals could harm the country’s economy, Reuters said.

Responding to the ruling, Bayer said it welcomes the ruling issued by a Brazilian court that ensures growers in that country will have continued access to glyphosate-based herbicides.

“This ruling is very good news for Brazilian growers, who count on glyphosate-based herbicides to control weeds and grow their crops safely and effectively,” said Liam Condon, Member of the Board of Management of Bayer AG and President of the Crop Science Division. “Glyphosate helps farmers grow their crops with less of an impact on the soil and reduced carbon emissions.”

On Aug. 3, 2018 a Brazilian judge issued an injunction that could have prohibited the registration and use of glyphosate-based herbicides and several other crop protection products in the country. The injunction was not a ruling on glyphosate safety but only related to delays in routine regulatory reviews of crop protection products.
