Argentine agchem use draft bill advances

Draft Argentine pesticide legislation has received the unanimous approval of the constitution commission of the lower house of Parliament. The proposed law would regulate the use and sale of pesticides, with the aim of “preventing environmental contamination, lower the risk of poisonings from pesticides and maintain food safety through the use of GAP”. The draft legislation has already received full endorsement from the environment commission. Next up is the farming commission, Argentine newswire Neuquén reports. Environment commission president Graciela Muñiz Saavedra reportedly says that the bill would bring Argentine legislation into line with that of international markets. “One of the new regulations would be obliging pesticide users to employ triple rinsing of empty pesticide packaging, and enforce a system for the management empty containers,” she reportedly says.
