EU confirms decision against 1,3-D re-registration

The European Commission has confirmed its decision not to re-register the nematicide, 1,3-dichloropropene (1,3-D). Some EU member states had supported the active ingredient as an alternative to the ozone-depleting fumigant, methyl bromide. However, they were unable to reach the majority vote needed to overturn the Commission’s proposal against re-registration ( Agrow No 606, p 11). Dow AgroSciences and Kanesho Soil Treatment had re-applied for approval after the EU decided in 2006 not to re-register 1,3-D. Despite the submission of new data, the Commission says that concerns remained over 11 unidentified manufacturing impurities. Issues included consumer exposure, potential contamination of ground water, and potential long-range transport.
