Triflusulfuron-methyl: approval not renewed by EU

Published by AGRINFO on ; Revised

Summary

The European Commission has published its decision not to renew approval of the active substance triflusulfuron-methyl. This is due to concerns about groundwater contamination and potential adverse effects on human health. EU Member States will have to withdraw authorisations for products containing triflusulfuron-methyl. This decision should have no impact on exports.
