Spain rejects emergency use of malathion

Spain has rejected calls for the exceptional use approval for the organophosphate insecticide, malathion, for use on rice, national media report. The Ministry of Work’s national commission for the evaluation of pesticide products declined to authorise the pesticide earlier this month. Farm co-operatives have since reiterated the call for its emergency use approval for the current rice growing season. The Extremadura food growing co-operative believes legislation should permit a gradual substitution process, introducing a swift and controlled incorporation of new and more effective active ingredients than are yet available. There is neither any authorised product for use on rice against aphids, nor “an effective enough” ai to control stink bugs, it says.
