Bayer wary of Australian fenthion permits

Bayer CropScience has warned growers that the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority’s (APVMA) new permits covering the use of its Lebaycid Insecticide Spray (fenthion 550 g/litre) may not allow effective pest control. The APVMA has suspended use of the product for one year, thereby banning its use on certain fruit and vegetable crops and altering use patterns on other crops. The suspension took effect on October 31st. The APVMA proposed the suspension of many fenthion uses in September because of acute dietary risks or insufficient residue data ( Agrow No 648, p 18).
