EU re-registration for prochloraz
The fungicide, prochloraz, has gained formal EU re-registration from the European Commission. It will be added to the Annex Part B list of approved active ingredients under the EU agrochemical registration Regulation (1107/2009) on January 1st 2012. The move follows a positive vote by the EU regulatory committee ( Agrow No 626, p 8). BASF and Makhteshim-Agan Industries re-applied for approval in 2009 after an earlier EU evaluation found data gaps.
