EPA decision regarding Belt insecticide


Bayer CropScience announced today that EPA will proceed with its decision to cancel the registration of the insecticide, Belt, which has been used to manage moth larvae in tree fruit systems such as codling moth, oriental fruit moth, and leafrollers. The decision does allow for existing stocks to be sold and used by growers, although there is no timeline or deadline provided for these activities. Any further information regarding this decision will be posted as it is available.
