BRASÍLIA (Reuters) – A Brazilian court has overturned an injunction banning products containing the popular weed-killer glyphosate, following a government appeal of the decision, according to court documents disclosed on Monday.

Last month a Brazilian judge had ruled to halt the registration of new glyphosate-based products in the country and to suspend existing registrations after 30 days, to remain in effect until health agency Anvisa issues a pending ruling on its safety.
