More ais approach EU Annex I
The first active ingredients from the third round of the EU review of existing ais to gain re-registration are close to completing the process. The herbicides, prosulfocarb and clomazone, and the fungicide, fludioxonil, were cleared by the EU Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health (SCFCAH) in October. Following confirmation by the European Commission, the ais will be added to Annex I of the EU agrochemical registration Directive (91/414). Syngenta and its forerunners, Zeneca and Novartis, supported prosulfocarb and fludioxonil through the review, while FMC supported clomazone.
