European Commission: Perfluidone is
one of 320 pesticides to be withdrawn in July 2003.
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- are to be withdrawn from the market by 25 July 2003 as part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of whether the products they use or sell are likely to be withdrawn,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:

CORPORATION - plans
to voluntarily cancel the use of perfluidone (Destin) on TOBACCO
due to the cost of reregistration. This is the last registered
use of this herbicide; it has not been marketed in the U.S.
for several years. Unless withdrawn by the registrant, this
cancellation becomes final on 10/18/94. PBI/Gordon will consider
continuing this use if another party wishes to develop the
required data. If cancelled, existing stocks of perfluidone
in the hands of dealers and users can be distributed, sold
or used until such stocks are depleted. Note: The Fed. Reg.
is not available online for early 1994. This information comes
from a USDA notice.
EPA Proposed Tolerance Revocation for residues on cottonseed.
The EPA has proposed to revoke the tolerances for residues of
perfluidone in or on COTTONSEED. All registrations were cancelled
in 1984. This herbicide was never commercially marketed in the
U.S. Note: The Fed. Reg. is not available online in 1992. This
information is from the Pesticide Management Education Program
(PMEP) at Cornell University
