A recent report provides a detailed evaluation of the toxicological and environmental effects of fluopyram and of three fungicidal products containing it. The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has granted conditional registration for the sale and use of all four products, subject to certain risk-reduction measures.

…and issues registration decisions on three other pesticides

Health Canada’s PMRA has released brief reports outlining the toxicology of the following three pesticidal active ingredients:

  • fenamidone (as a potato fungicide)
  • cyflumetofen (as an insecticide against fruit mites)
  • chlorantraniliprole (as an insecticide against termites and other insect pests)

The sale and use of all three is approved, as the level of human exposure is judged to be “well below” the lowest dose at which toxicological effects have been observed in test animals.
