Results from a FAPESP-funded study were published in a Spanish government scientific journal (photo: Embrapa archives) November 19, 2014 By Diego Freire Agência FAPESP – The most recent edition of the Spanish Journal of Agricultural Research, a scientific journal published by the National Institute for Agriculture and Food Research and Technology of Spain’s Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, offers a mathematical model capable of estimating the amount of gray water required to dilute concentrations of pesticide mixtures in water, thus reducing risks posed to the aquatic environment.

The manual, mechanized and semi mechanized systems of application, adopted by the grape growers of the city of Petrolina/PE, have been analyzed through a method of both quantitative and qualitative evaluation. In such a way, two production units were visited: a mid-sized company and another one from of the CODEVASF. Five simulations were carried out in four systems of pesticide application using the European entire body method. Pre-application processes, such as storage and dilution of pesticides, as well as post-application processes, including equipment maintenance, cleaning and storage of clothes used for the application process were also analyzed.

According to the 2006 Agricultural Census, there were 5.17 million agricultural companies, a total of 329.94 million hectares. This is reflected in the large demand for and consumption of chemical products or compounds named pesticides. In 2008, the country became the world's largest consumer of pesticides and was responsible for 86% of Latin America consumption.

The term "agrotóxico" (pesticide) was adopted in Brazil through Federal Law nº 7,802/1989, regulated by Decree nº 4,074/2002, and refers to any chemical compounds aimed to control, destruct or prevent, directly or indirectly, substances pathogenic to plants and animals useful to humans. Pesticides may take the form of herbicides, fungicides, rodenticides, nematicides, acaricides, molluscicides, termiticides, growth regulators and inhibitors, fumigants, fertilizers, wood preservatives and certain veterinary products.

The "ecological footstep" of the compounds is increasing, according to a study conducted at USP that evaluated the usage standards of large and small producers.

The article was published by the Royal Society July 10, 2013 By Elton Alisson Agência FAPESP – Small producers along the Brazilian Amazon’s agricultural frontier are using pesticides in higher doses and at greater frequencies than are recommended, and in some cases, chemicals are being used that are inappropriate for the infestations that they are intended to control. The large soybean and sugarcane producers in the region follow more of the prevailing agronomical recommendations and even replace compounds that are more toxic to human health with other, less harmful inputs.

Abstract Introduction Brazil is one of the major pesticide consumers in the world. The continuous exposure to these substances may be etiologically associated with the development of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL).

Objective Estimate the correlation between the per capita sales of pesticides in 1985 (exposure) and NHL mortality rates between 1996 and 2005 (outcome), by Brazilian micro-regions. Method. GIZMAG 13/06/13 Brazilian researchers develop cheap portable pesticide biosensor. A multidisciplinary Brazilian research team has developed a biosensor to measure pesticide content on food produce, water and soil. The technology is in its development phase, but if developed into a commercial product it could provide a cheap, affordable and portable method to monitor this type of contamination. The biosensor is the result of a research carried out by Izabela Gutierrez de Arruda, a post-graduation student at Instituto de Física de São Carlos (IFSC), in São Paulo State.

The biosensor uses an enzyme inhibitor to detect the presence of a pesticide called methamidophos, an insecticide linked to neurological problems.

Talanta Volume 88, 15 January 2012, Multiresidue determination of pesticides in industrial and fresh orange juice by hollow fibe. Abstract A procedure involving hollow fiber microporous membrane liquid–liquid extraction (HF-MMLLE) and detection by liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry was developed and applied. The extraction is based on liquid–liquid microextraction with a polypropylene porous membrane as a solid support for the solvent. On the membrane walls the solvent forms a renewable liquid membrane which improves the trueness of the method and promotes the sample clean-up.

The applicability of this method was evaluated through the simultaneous extraction of 18 pesticides of different classes: polar organophosphates, carbamates, neonicotinoids, amides, pyrimidines, benzimidazoles and triazoles in industrial and fresh orange juice. The parameters affecting the extraction efficiency were optimized by multivariable designs. EMBRAPA - 2011 - Poster : INTEGRATED PRODUCTION SYSTEM OF RICE FOR RISK PREVENTION IN BRAZIL.
