Metazachlor use conditions amended in EU
Changes to allow more frequent applications of the herbicide, metazachlor, in the EU will come into force on March 5th. The European Commission approved the change in use pattern following the submission of data by BASF ( Agrow No 633, p 11). The original EU approval conditions limited metazachlor application to a maximum of 1 kg/ha every third year on the same field. This has now been changed to a total of 1 kg/ha in a three-year period on the same field.
