The Pesticide Notification Network, operated by Washington State University, provides pesticide users with up-to-the-minute information on proposed regulation changes that could affect them. It includes a searchable database of chemicals. Today’s notifications include an announcement from the EPA regarding the insecticides Furadan 4F and Furadan LFR. The manufacturer, FMC Corporation, has requested the the deletion of the use of these chemicals on alfalfa, ornamentals, pine seedlings (except for the southeastern US), small grains, sweet corn and – except in Idaho, Oregon and Washington – potatoes. It was also announced today that Fuller Systems has requested the deletion of its product Fulex Nicotine Fumigator, a nicotine-based insecticide used in greenhouses. According to the site, this request will delete the last U.S. registration of nicotine, which is toxic to humans. For more information on these proposed deletions, visit PNN’s Web site.
