The Minister of Agroindustry of Buenos Aires, Argentina, Leonardo Sarquís, has signed a resolution that restricts the use of the herbicide 2,4-D during a specific period of the year throughout the province.
The resolution states that the use of the herbicide 2,4-D is restricted in its formulations, butyl and isobutyl esters, between October 1 and March 31, when production is being carried out.
During this period, which corresponds to the time of the year predisposing to its volatility, the restriction extends to the entire province and includes any mode of application, such as aerial, terrestrial or manual.
The restriction will come into force from October 1, 2017, after a communication has been issued in this regard to all those using these products.
"The resolution would generate the conditions for a more sustainable production," Sarquís indicated.
2,4 D: 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) is a very common systemic auxin hormone herbicide, used in the control of broadleaf weeds. It is the third most widely used herbicide in North America, and the most widely used herbicide in the world.
