New Zealand mulls zinc phosphide import

The New Zealand Environmental Risk Management Authority is seeking comment on an application to import micro-encapsulated zinc phosphide for use in the manufacture of a vertebrate pest control agent. The application was made by the pest control company, Pest-Tech (Leeston). Zinc phosphide is seen as an alternative to sodium fluoroacetate (also known as 1080) for possum control. The Australian authorities finalised restrictions on 1080 last year following an extensive review ( Agrow No 536, p 16). Its use is mainly confined to Australia and New Zealand.
