US re-registration for dikegulac-sodium:
The US EPA has issued a re-registration eligibility decision (RED) for the non-crop pesticide, dikegulac-sodium. The plant growth regulator is registered by PBI/Gordon Corporation for use in greenhouses and nurseries, and on trees and ornamentals. The Agency has identified no health concerns, but requires that handlers wear additional personal protective equipment and that increased restricted-entry intervals be implemented. Ecological risks are low, but spray drift warnings are required to protect semi-aquatic plants. The RED is open to public comment until June 11th.
