Canadian province finalises pesticide ban

The Canadian province of Ontario has finalised regulations to implement its ban on pesticides for cosmetic or non-essential uses. The ban takes effect on April 22nd. The Environment Ministry has retained the 11 classes of pesticides approved for use in Ontario that were proposed in November 2008 ( Agrow No 556, p 17). Modifications to those lists mean that 82 active ingredients and 254 products will be banned for cosmetic use. The Ministry lists 99 products with cosmetic and non-cosmetic uses that are subject to restricted sales. It lists 27 low-risk products for use by “licensed exterminators” with public notices.
