US import tolerance for ISK's pyriofenone
The US EPA proposes to establish an import tolerance for Ishihara Sangyo Kaisha’s powdery mildew fungicide, pyriofenone, in grapes. The company is seeking the first approvals for the fungicide in the EU and Japan, which it hopes to receive in the second quarter of this year. US approval is not expected until 2015 ( Agrow No 621, p 10). The import tolerance decision is open to public comment until January 21st.
