Argentine court restricts agchem use

An Argentine regional court has restricted the use of pesticides near public areas, due to alleged health problems. The Civil and Trade Appeals Chamber in Santa Fe has ruled that ground applications of pesticides may only be made at a radius of at least 800 m, and aerial applications at a minimum of 1,500 m from urban areas of the city, San Jorge. The main pesticide targeted in the lawsuit was the herbicide, glyphosate. The decision was appealed by the province of Santa Fe last December and the Chamber confirmed the ruling in the first instance. The ban is to run six months from the date of the ruling, pending an official report. The verdict came in December last year but has only been released to the public this month.
