New EU rapporteur for dimethomorph renewal
The Netherlands has taken over from Poland as EU rapporteur member state handling the evaluation of the fungicide, dimethomorph, for renewal of its authorisation. The change took effect in July and was requested by BASF, in agreement with the member states concerned (Agrow No 690, p 8). Germany remains as co-rapporteur. Dimethomorph is among 150 active ingredients in the third ai renewal programme, AIR-3.
