Argentina House of Deputies approves agchem bills

The Argentine lower house of Parliament’s legislative directory reports that the house granted part sanction in 2014 to nine draft laws on agriculture, including the draft law on agrochemicals, according to Argentine media. The house approval is for legislation that would guarantee free delivery of pesticides to grapevine growers to combat European grapevine moths (Lobesia botrana). The bill proposes that the Ministry of Agriculture guarantee applications through delivery of insecticides. The approval was also extended to a private members bill that seeks to ban the production, import and use of phosphine and another phosphorus-based compound with any type of pesticide in cereal and oilseed products or sub-products in transit. The issues move to the upper house, the Senate.
