Consultation on Tebuconazole and Its Associated End-use Products, Proposed Re-evaluation Decision PRVD2021-08
Health Canada is consulting Canadians on the proposal to continue registration of tebuconazole and all associated end-use products registered for sale and use in Canada, provided that additional proposed risk mitigation measures are put in place to further protect human health and the environment.
Tebuconazole is of value to agricultural producers and turfgrass managers as it controls numerous economically important foliar, seed-borne, and soil-borne diseases, as well as several damaging turfgrass pathogens. In addition, tebuconazole is used as a non-metallic heavy-duty wood preservative to extend the service life of treated wood, and is also used in conjunction with other active ingredients that protect treated wood against termite damage.
Risks to human health and the environment were shown to be acceptable when tebuconazole is used according to the proposed conditions of registration, which include new risk mitigation measures.
For a full list of products containing tebuconazole, please consult Appendix I in the PRVD or visit the Pesticide Label Search database.
For more information on the proposed decision open the "Proposed Re-evaluation Decision".
