EU to add restrictions to glufosinate use

European Commission proposals to impose restrictions on the use of the herbicide, glufosinate-ammonium, have been voted through by member states in the EU regulatory committee. Authorisation of the active ingredient will only be for band or spot application at rates not exceeding 750 g ai/ha (treated surface) per application, and a maximum of two applications per year. The decision has been made because confirmatory data submitted to support the ai’s original approval have failed to resolve outstanding concerns, the Commission says.
