Australia suspends dichlorvos for grain

The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has suspended the use of the organophosphate insecticide, dichlorvos, for use on stored grain pending the generation of new data to address risks to workers. Use can continue on an “interim basis” subject to permits stipulating risk reduction measures. The APVMA banned several uses of dichlorvos and placed restrictions on other uses in 2011 ( Agrow No 611, p 24).
