Dow resubmits trifluralin in EU

Dow AgroSciences, as part of the EU Trifluralin Task Force, has resubmitted an application for the EU re-registration of the herbicide, trifluralin. The company, along with Makhteshim-Agan Industries, has already taken court action to overturn the European Commission's previous decision not to re-register the active ingredient. Earlier this year, it failed to get the ai's phase-out schedule suspended until the lawsuit is resolved ( Agrow No 546, p 9). Greece is rapporteur member state for the re-evaluation of trifluralin, which is part of a new EU system for ais that have been unsuccessful so far in gaining re-registration. A total of 11 ais have been resubmitted under the new system to date and one of them, the herbicide, diuron, has been re-registered (see this issue).
