Dow seeks return of old UK aminopyralid stocks

Dow AgroSciences has called on UK farmers to return old stocks of products containing its herbicide, aminopyralid. The UK Chemicals Regulation Directorate suspended the approval for sale, supply, and use of the active ingredient in 2008 ( Agrow No 549, p 14), but the suspension was lifted in October 2009 ( Agrow No 578, p 12). The company says that while aminopyralid has regained authorisation for use on grassland, any old stocks remaining on farm cannot be used as labels will not reflect the newly-approved use instructions. Dow’s aminopyralid-based product, Forefront, will be supplied with a new label under a new registration number. “Farmers will not be complying with the regulations governing correct use of crop protection products if they look to use any aminopyralid product – Forefront, Pharaoh or Banish – that was supplied before the products were suspended in 2008,” says a Dow technical specialist.
