US EPA outlines bromoxynil review
The US EPA plans to complete its registration review for the herbicide, bromoxynil, in 2019. Details of the preliminary work plan were not available with the latest batch of reviews to be opened ( Agrow No 661, p 18) due to an incorrect docket number. The review will cover bromoxynil phenol and its octanoate and heptanoate esters. There are about 50 bromoxynil-based products for a range of agricultural and non-crop applications. The technical registrants are Albaugh, Bayer CropScience, Makhteshim Agan of North America and Nufarm. The EPA expects to conduct a comprehensive ecological risk assessment and revised dietary and occupational risk assessments during the registration review.
