Spain relaunches anti-illegal agchem drive

The Spanish pesticide industry is stepping up its campaign against the use of illegal pesticides. The Spanish agrochemical industry association, the AEPLA, has issued a telephone number for anonymous informants to report the use or distribution of banned active ingredients. A public information campaign and drive against the use or sale of illegal pesticides was launched last year ( Agrow No 530, p 14). They followed several findings in early 2007 of consignments of Spanish peppers around Europe with residues of the banned ai, isofenphos-methyl, among others ( Agrow No 521, p 10). The AEPLA hails the campaign so far as a success with “hardly any further problems” involving the use of such products. The association says that Spain’s horticultural product sector has won back its positive image, but insists the public drive should continue.
