Australia partially relaxes fenthion suspension

The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has issued an interim permit allowing the "very restricted" use of the suspended insecticide, fenthion, on apricots and peaches in the 2013/14 growing season. The APVMA extended the fenthion suspension to apricots and peaches in mid-October (Agrow No 675, p 18). It subsequently received a request from an industry organisation to consider whether a single application of fenthion would be acceptable. The APVMA has determined that residue levels would be safe from one application with a 21-day pre-harvest interval. Residue levels will be monitored to ensure that this is the case.
