Consultation on Mancozeb and Its Associated End-use Products, Proposed Re-evaluation Decision PRVD2018-17
Notice to the reader:
This consultation is now closed.
Health Canada is proposing cancellation of all uses of mancozeb, except greenhouse tobacco, due to risks to human health and the environment that were not found to be acceptable. Mancozeb is a protectant contact fungicide currently registered for use in Canada to control a broad spectrum of plant diseases on a wide variety of food and feed crops, as well as uses in forests and woodlots, outdoor ornamentals and greenhouse food crops.
A list of products containing mancozeb can be found in the Pesticide Label Search database.
For more information on the proposed decision open the “Proposed Re-evaluation Decision”.
