Canada extends insecticide phase-outs

The Canadian Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has extended the use of American Vanguard's granular organophosphate insecticides, Thimet 15G (phorate) and Counter 15G (terbufos), until 2012. The extended phase-outs are necessary because of the lack of alternative products to control wireworms (Agriotes spp) in potatoes and sugar beet, respectively, the PMRA points out. The extensions depend on the registrant submitting annual sales data and on the continued involvement of stakeholders in the development of transition strategies to alternative control measures, the Agency adds. The schedule may be shortened if alternative products are registered.
