On November 24, 2020, Law No. 64 of the Department of Plant Protection and Agricultural Inputs of the Ministry of Agricultural Defense was published in the Official Gazette and a record number of 21 technical products were revealed. All these products are generic, meaning that they use active principles that have already been registered and are currently in use within the national territory.

As these are technical products, farmers will not be able to purchase any of these 21 registered products. Technical products are chemicals with a high degree of purity and concentration of active ingredient. The function of a technical product will later be used as a component in the production of formulated products.

The products were analyzed and approved by the Ministry of Agriculture, Ibama and Anvisa, according to scientific criteria and in line with best international practices.
