NRDC Warns EPA Not To Jeopardize Its Reduced Risk Program For Pesticides
The Natural Resources Defense Council has informed EPA that failure to cancel an old pesticide in lieu of a new more effective pesticide will seriously undermine its reduced risk initiative program. The pesticide in question is metolachlor. The manufacturer of the pesticide, Syngenta, states that millions of pounds of the pesticide will no longer be used if its old pesticide is canceled and its new pesticide S-metolachlor is allowed to go on the market. A potential manufacturer of the old pesticide, Cedar Chemical Corporation opposes the cancellation.
