The US EPA's Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) has updated its list of planned registration decisions for new active ingredients in fiscal 2008/09. The OPP has scheduled nine decisions for fiscal 2008 rather than the ten that were originally listed last year.
Chemtura's application to register the herbicide, quinoclamine, has been withdrawn, while that for Ajay North America's fungicide, potassium tri-iodide, has been moved to the OPP's list of planned new uses for registered ais. A decision on Bayer CropScience's herbicide, thiencarbazone-methyl, has been brought forward from fiscal 2009 to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008.
