Argentine province restricts 2,4-D use

The Argentine province of Santa Fe has restricted the use of 2,4-D herbicides. It has banned the application of isobutyl ester formulations, while severely restricting the aerial and ground application of dimethyl amine salt formulations. The latter may only be applied aerially at least 6,000 m from human populations, and terrestrial applications at 1,000 m away from “population centres”. The restrictions are in reference to urban areas, rural schools, orchards, bee hives, waterways, and sources of drinking water. Resolution 135/15 answered lobbying from the environmentalists and NGOs, CPN and Conciencia Solidaria, in June of last year. The CPN has reportedly welcomed the rules, while rating them “insufficient”. Santa Fe has become the fifth province to impose restrictions on 2,4-D, following Chaco, Santiago del Estero, Entre Ríos and Córdoba. The herbicide is the second most applied pesticide active ingredient in Argentina, media report.
