Probe into fake agchems sold to Brazil’s Embrapa

Brazilian police have launched an investigation into the sale of fake agrochemicals to the Brazilian agricultural research corporation, the Embrapa, national and state media report. The Ministry of Agriculture body is among the largest agricultural technology research companies in Brazil. The falsified products were purchased through regular suppliers. A company from the state of Parana won an online bidding tender to supply products to the corporation’s regional office late last year. One supplied insecticide proved to be ineffective, alerting the corporation staff to potential resistance issues, but who discovered through tests that the product was fake. The state crop protection agency, the Adapar, subsequently alerted the national police. The company under investigation has been banned from public tender bids.
