More new ais scheduled for US decisions in fiscal 2016
The US EPA Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) has scheduled registration decisions for two more new active ingredients in fiscal 2016 (ending September 30th). They are for Monsanto's nematicidal seed treatment, tioxazafen, and Gowan's rice herbicide, benzobicyclon. There are five more new ais with decision dates in fiscal 2016 that were previously scheduled: BASF's insecticide, teflubenzuron (import); Ishihara Sangyo Kaisha's insecticide, cyclaniliprole, and fungicide, pyriofenone; and Sumitomo Chemical's fungicides, diethofencarb (import), and mandestrobin. The OPP no longer provides a quarterly schedule.
