Decision on re-registration of diquat delayed for a further year #clubhectare

Now, according to a Syngenta spokesperson (Syngenta manufactures diquat-containing Reglone), the decision on re-registration of several important active ingredients, including diquat, has been delayed for a further year, because the European Commission and member states have not been able to make a decision on them so far.

 

“The expiry date has been extended for metalaxyl-m, diquat and pymetrozine by one-year, until the end of June 2018. This will allow the Commission to complete the review process.

 

“It does not pre-judge in any way what that decision will be. However, this does mean that when a decision is made on the renewal or non-renewal, it will apply immediately and not at the end of a one-year period,” said the spokesperson.

 

Metalaxyl is a potato blight fungicide and pymetrozine is an insecticide used for control of aphids in a range of crops and pollen beetle in oilseed rape.
