US review details for trichlorfon
The US EPA plans to update and revise the ecological and human health risk assessments for the insecticide, trichlorfon, during its registration review, which is due for completion in 2015. Trichlorfon was one of 11 organophosphate pesticides for which reviews began in March, but details for trichlorfon were not initially available ( Agrow No 564, p 16). Bayer CropScience is the sole registrant for trichlorfon, which is used on turf and ornamentals. The EPA will consider the degradation of trichlorfon to dichlorvos, but a separate review of dichlorvos is due to start later this year.
