US EPA restricts pesticides for at-risk fish

The US EPA is to place use restrictions on three organophosphate insecticides in four states following consultations with the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) over their risks to endangered salmon. The new limits for chlorpyrifos, diazinon and malathion could be in place for spring 2010, the EPA points out. It is requesting the primary registrants ( Dow AgroSciences, Cheminova and Makhteshim-Agan Industries) to adopt the restrictions voluntarily, but will pursue regulatory action if the requests are declined, the Agency says.
