Paraguay phases out endosulfan and suspends imports

Paraguay has banned the use of the organochlorine insecticide, endosulfan, on horticultural crops and stone fruit. The Paraguayan plant health and seed quality service, the Senave, has also ordered the gradual reduction of the active ingredient’s use on other crops. All uses will end within two years. The service has also suspended the process of all new registrations and any imports of either the ai or products based upon it. Furthermore, aerial applications are banned with immediate effect. Only back-pack applications may continue, the Senave says.
