Spain grants new 1,3-D 120-day approval

Spain has granted an exceptional use authorisation for the fumigant, 1,3-dichloropropene (1,3-D), as a soil disinfectant prior to planting of horticultural plants, strawberry beds, cut flowers and potatoes. The registration runs from July 1st until October 31st. Spain granted a similar approval for the active ingredient earlier this year until the end of June for use on grapevines, vegetables, strawberries, tobacco and cut flowers ( Agrow No 587, p 27). In 2006, the European Commission set a phase-out date for 1,3-D for March 20th 2009, but included an option to extend its use beyond that as an alternative to the ozone-depleting fumigant, methyl bromide. Spain was rapporteur member state and supported its use.
