EU to phase out acetochlor and chloropicrin

The European Commission has set phase-out schedules for the herbicide, acetochlor, and the fumigant, chloropicrin, after an appeal committee backed its proposals not to re-register the two active ingredients. EU member states will have to withdraw approvals by June 23rd 2012 and may allow existing stocks to be used for a further year. The Commission’s proposals had been referred to the appeal committee after EU member states were unable to reach the majority needed to accept or reject them ( Agrow No 628, p 12).
