Two ais approach EU approval

Syngenta’s new cereal fungicide, isopyrazam (trade-marked as IZM), and German company S&A (Service und Anwendungstechnik)’s post-harvest insecticide treatment, phosphane, are nearing completion of the EU registration process. Proposals to approve both active ingredients have been cleared by the EU Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health. Syngenta applied for EU approval in 2008, while isopyrazam received its first provisional authorisation in the UK in 2010 for use on barley ( Agrow No 589, p 25). The ai also holds registrations in Austria, Ireland, the Netherlands and Romania. S&A applied for approval in 2007 for phosphane as a fumigant for coffee beans, cacao beans, fatty seeds, dried fruits and stored cereals. The ai has been provisionally approved in Germany.
