Regulatory and legal developments in the US crop protection industry

Regulatory and legal developments in the US crop protection industry

Published: 11 October 2016

Register now to listen to Jonathan Pegg, Agrow’s US Correspondent, as he explores whether the US EPA are shifting towards a more precautionary approach to pesticide regulation, and the effects this would have on the industry.

This shift would mean that registrants and pesticide users could face additional restrictions for existing active ingredients as well as additional data requirements for new products. Court rulings are having an increased impact on the EPA’s work and pending Agency actions related to the insecticides chloryprifos, sulfoxaflor, imidacloprid and flubendiamide, along with the herbicides atrazine, glyphosate and 2,4-D, could provide bellwethers for US pesticide industry stakeholders.

Live Date: Tuesday, October 11

Duration: 1 hour

Key questions that will be answered:
How are court rulings affecting EPA’s pesticide regulation?
Are anti-pesticide groups having more impact on EPA’s work?
What key decisions and court cases could provide insight into the EPA’s changing approach?
What might pesticide regulation look like under a Clinton or Trump administration?
