EPA expected to re-register generic chlorpyrifos
February 21, 2020 By Julie Harker Filed Under: News
The EPA reportedly will keep the insecticide chlorpyrifos legal. Earlier this month Corteva said it would no longer make the insecticide which goes mostly by the name of Lorsban.
EPA tells DTN that it will continue
with the re-registration of the active ingredient so generic forms of chlorpyrifos
will remain available.
EPA has defended the chemical in
lawsuits that say it can affect neuro-development in people, especially
Corteva says it is dropping chlorpyrifos for business reasons since sales have dropped off.
