Canada to extend acequinocyl approvals
The Canadian Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has proposed an extension to the conditional registrations of Arysta LifeScience’s acequinocyl-based acaricides, Shuttle 15 EC and Kanemite 15 EC. The products were approved in 2007 on condition that further data were supplied by December 2008. The PMRA intends to extend the approvals until December 31st 2011. Shuttle is registered for use on protected ornamentals and horticultural crops, while Kanemite is for field-grown ornamentals and pome fruit. The approval extensions are subject to a 45-day comment period from March 4th.
