EU corrects approved uses of three rodenticides

The European Commission has corrected the terminology of the approved uses of three rodenticides, aluminium phosphide, magnesium phosphide and calcium phosphide. To aluminium phosphide’s and magnesium phosphide’s existing approved uses as insecticides and rodenticides, the Commission has added uses as talpicides (moles) and leporicides (rabbits and hares). The existing authorised use of calcium phosphide as a rodenticide now also includes use as a talpicide. The changes have been made to the active ingredients’ listing in Annex I of the EU registration Directive (91/414). The three ais were added to Annex I in September 2009 ( Agrow No 559, p 9).
