Bayer re-applies for EU approval of triflumuron
Bayer CropScience has submitted a re-application for EU approval of the insecticide, triflumuron. The European Commission had previously decided not to re-register the active ingredient due to lack of certain data ( Agrow No 564, p 14). Triflumuron is currently subject to a phase-out schedule allowing existing stocks to be sold and used until September 16th 2010. Italy is the rapporteur member state evaluating the new application.
