US EPA mulls spirotetramat ban

The US EPA has taken the unusual step of seeking public comment on how to deal with existing stocks of Bayer CropScience’s spirotetramat-based insecticides, Movento and Ultor, after the registrations are cancelled. The US District Court for the Southern District of New York ordered the registrations to be annulled because of the EPA’s failure to provide an advance notice and comment period before granting them ( Agrow No 583, p 13). The annulment has been stayed until February 16th ( Agrow No 584, p 12).
