EU fipronil restrictions confirmed

Formal legislation restricting the use of certain seed treatments based on the insecticide, fipronil, has been published in the EU Official Journal. The European Commission decided to impose the two-year restriction due to concerns over possible risks to honeybees (Agrow No 669, p 10). Fipronil seed treatments will only be permitted on seeds intended to be grown in greenhouses, or on outdoor crops of leeks, onions, shallots and brassica vegetables that will be harvested before flowering.
