Florasulam cleared for renewed EU approval
Proposals to renew the EU approval of Dow AgroSciences’ herbicide, florasulam, have been voted through by the EU Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed. The active ingredient was in the second group of ais going through the EU renewal programme, dubbed AIR-2. The renewal requires confirmation from the European Commission. It would then come into force the day after florasulam’s current approval expires on December 31st 2015.
