US carbofuran ban challenged

FMC and industry groups have filed legal challenges to the US EPA’s decision to deny an administrative hearing on its planned cancellation of all tolerances for the carbamate insecticide/nematicide, carbofuran. Following last month’s threat of legal action ( Agrow No 579, p 15), the petitioners asked the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia for a stay on the EPA’s decision pending an expedited review. The EPA opposed the motion and the petitioners filed their response on December 7th.
