Canadian approvals slip in fiscal 2014

The Canadian Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) approved just three new conventional pesticide active ingredients in the year ended March 2014. That compares with 11 in 2012/13 and six in 2011/12, and eight the previous year, according to the PMRA's latest annual report. The total number of new ais registered in 2013/14 amounted to 12 (27 in 202/13), including seven (14) biopesticides and two (two) antimicrobials. The 12 ais represented 33 end-use products. The conventional ais registered in 2013/14 were BASF's insecticide, chlorfenapyr, DuPont's insecticide, cyantraniliprole (trade-marked as Cyazypyr), and Nissan Chemical's herbicide, halosulfuron-methyl.
