The New Zealand Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) advises a hearing is scheduled for a modified reassessment of the herbicide Firebird. Firebird is an approved herbicide used to control certain broad-leaved and grass weeds in autumn- and winter-sown wheat and barley. The current approval allows Firebird to be applied at rates of up to 300 mL/ha. Bayer New Zealand Limited has applied to the EPA to allow its use at a higher maximum application rate (up to 700 mL/ha). 
 
Firebird is a selective herbicide containing 400 g/L flufenacet plus 200 g/L diflufenican. It was first assessed and approved in 2009. One of the controls applied to the approval was to restrict the application rate of the herbicide, primarily to manage risks of adverse effects to the environment. 
 
A hearing to decide on the application will be held on 7 April 2016 at Willeston Conference Centre. The final decision will be available on the EPA website.
