Spain grants 1,3-d 120-day approval

Spain has granted an exceptional use authorisation for the fumigant, 1,3-dichloropropene (1,3-D), a farmer association from the major vegetable producing region, Almeria, says. The approval runs for 120 days until June 30th and is for use on grapevines, vegetables, strawberries, tobacco and cut flowers. The active ingredient gained a 120-day registration in Spain last year. The European Commission declined to re-register 1,3-D in 2006 and set a phase-out date for March 20th 2009. However, it included an option to extend the ai’s use beyond that date, in view of 1,3-D’s role as an alternative to the ozone-depleting fumigant, methyl bromide. Spain was rapporteur member state and supported its use. Dow AgroSciences expected a decision by early 2010 ( Agrow No 575, p 15).
