NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council) seeks US pesticide ban

The US environmentalist group, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), has filed a lawsuit against the EPA seeking to ban the use of the insecticides, dichlorvos and carbaryl. The lawsuit was filed in the US District Court for the Southern District of New York late last month. The NRDC has previously filed petitions with the EPA challenging tolerances and re-registration eligibility decisions for both insecticides. The EPA plans to carry out registration reviews for dichlorvos and carbaryl in fiscal 2009 and 2010, respectively (Agrow No 506, p 14).
