Argentine province to phase out glyphosate

An Argentine provincial Parliament has proposed the phase-out of the herbicide, glyphosate, by 2019, national media report. The legislature covering the capital and the province taking its name, Buenos Aires, is to consider a bill from an MP of the centre-left FpV part, which is in the governing national coalition. It proposes a 10% annual reduction in the use of glyphosate over the decade. The MP cites research from the Ministry of Science and Technology’s national scientific counsel, the Conicet, that the active ingredient can produce malformation in human embryos. The study was made public last year, but the Conicet disowned it ( Agrow No 567, p 20). Argentine courts have restricted use of the herbicide near public areas in the past year ( Agrow No 595, p 17), while another provincial Parliament is considering spraying limits ( Agrow No 596, p 18).
