26, 2002 - European
Commission: Haloxyfop is
one of 320 pesticides to be withdrawn in July 2003. However,
a specific exemption for continued use of Haloxyfop has been
allowed in Denmark for use on Seed gras fields of red
fescue and seed beds of ornamentals. Some
320 substances used in plant protection products (PPPs) - including
insecticides, fungicides and herbicides - are to be withdrawn
from the market by 25 July 2003 as part of the European Commission's
new approach to the evaluation of active substances in plant
protection products. This aims to improve safeguards to ensure
that all such products in use are safe for the environment and
human health. Users, wholesalers and retailers of plant protection
products will need to be aware of whether the products they
use or sell are likely to be withdrawn, so as to prevent them
being left with stocks of unusable material. Those concerned
should contact their national authority to check the authorisation
status for any particular product. The Regulation (ní 2076/2002
of 20 November 2002), with the list of the 320 substances, has
now been published in the Offical Journal. Ref: MIDDAY EXPRESS.
