Consultation on Fenhexamid and its associated end-use products, proposed re-evaluation decision PRVD2020-01
Health Canada is consulting Canadians on the proposal to continue registration for all uses of pesticides with fenhexamid, provided the proposed additional risk mitigation measures are put in place. This proposed decision follows a re-evaluation of the pesticide under the Pest Management Regulatory Agency's (PMRA) Re-evaluation Program.
Fenhexamid is a foliar fungicide registered for use on greenhouse vegetables and ornamentals, as well as outdoor fruit trees, berries, ginseng, grapes, stone fruits and ornamentals to control gray mould.
Currently registered products containing fenhexamid can be found in the Pesticide Label Search results and in Appendix I of the proposed re-evaluation decision.
Health Canada proposes label statements to protect workers with updated requirements for personal protective equipment and increased restricted-entry intervals, requirements to protect bystanders from spray drift, as well as spray buffer zones to protect sensitive aquatic habitats.
For more information on the proposed decision open the "Proposed Re-evaluation Decision".
