EU confirms end to trifluralin

The European Commission has confirmed the decision not to re-register the herbicide, trifluralin. It follows a vote by the EU regulatory committee in May ( Agrow No 592, p 11). The vote was taken on a re-application for approval submitted by Dow AgroSciences, as part of the EU Trifluralin Task Force, after the Commission originally decided against re-registration in 2007. The new data submitted did not eliminate all the concerns that led to that earlier decision, the Commission says. The particular issues were the potential high risk to aquatic organisms and the potential for long-range transport via air.
