US approval decisions up in 2011/12

The US EPA’s Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) completed 1,574 registration actions under the Pesticide Registration Improvement Act (PRIA) in fiscal 2012 (ended September 30th). That represented an increase of 1.3% from the 1,554 decisions in fiscal 2011 ( Agrow No 636, p 14). The slight upturn was due to a 29.1% rise in the number of completed decisions for biopesticides. Decisions for conventional pesticides dipped by 0.6% to 1,068 and those for antimicrobials by 3.8% to 333.
