TWG (Technical Working Group) welcomes NAFTA label
The NAFTA Technical Working Group (TWG) on Pesticides has welcomed the establishment of the first NAFTA label for use in the US and Canada. Gowan's herbicide, Avadex/Far-Go (triallate), is the first product to be issued with such a label (Agrow No 515, p 16). The TWG commends the grower/industry/government task force that worked on the pilot programme and recognises Gowan's role for successfully registering "a truly North American product". A further 12 pesticides are being considered for NAFTA labels, the TWG points out.
