Brazil yet to rule on glyphosate ban, agriculture minister says

BRASILIA, Aug 24 (Reuters) - Brazil’s Agriculture Minister Blairo Maggi said on Twitter on Friday that he had incorrectly stated a day earlier that a court had lifted an injunction on products containing the popular herbicide glyphosate and that a ruling was still pending.

A Brazilian court had ruled on Aug. 3 that new products containing the chemical could not be registered in the country and existing registrations would be suspended starting from September, until health authority Anvisa issues a decision on its re-evaluation of glyphosate’s safety.
