The Pest Management Regulatory Association has updated the Canadian Golf Superintendents Association about the status of quintozene use in Canada. The following is a formal letter from the PMRA to the CGSA, dated July 14.
Dear Sirs,
Recently, you were notified of the release of Health Canada's decision document (RVD2010-06) regarding quintozene use in Canada. We received several inquiries regarding the implementation details of the decision for turf uses, which are as follows:
·          As of December 31, 2010, all turf uses of quintozene fungicide will be cancelled. After that date, no product with turf use claims will be allowed to be imported, sold or used in Canada.
·          Canadian fungicide registrants will be responsible for replacing all end-use product labels with revised labels in the marketplace by December 31, 2010.
·          The Canadian quintozene technical registrant, Amvac, will be responsible for disposing of any remaining product [labelled with cancelled uses] from the Canadian distribution system and in the hands of users.
With regards to fertilizer-quintozene combination products, PMRA is currently in discussion with CFIA regarding appropriate timeframes for implementing this decision. We will provide an update as soon as this is available.
If you have any further questions, please contact:
