The New Zealand Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) is seeking views on an application to import or manufacture Soleto, a broad spectrum herbicide for potatoes.

Soleto contains the active ingredient metobromuron, which is approved in Europe but not currently in New Zealand.

The applicant, Belchim Crop Protection, wants to import Soleto for the control of broadleaf weeds in potatoes, using ground-based application methods.

The application is available to view on EPA’s website. Interested parties can also view science memorandum to inform their submission on this application. The memo outlines the environmental and human health risk assessment of Soleto, carried out by EPA staff. Before now, science memoranda have been made available later in the application process.

Public comment will be closed on 5 October 2020.
