Fipronil detected using on vegetables

  1. 1. Fipronil Detected Using on VegetablesSummary: Fipronil is traced on the vegetables in a vegetable market in Huizhou City,Guangdong Province, in early June of 2012.Tags: pesticide, insecticide, fipronil, phenylpyrazole, vegetable, seed treatment, vegetable insectFipronil, a kind of phenylpyrazole insecticide, was traced on the vegetables in a vegetable marketin Huizhou City, Guangdong Province, in early June of 2012. As China has banned the sales andapplication of it since Oct. 2009 except for overseas sales, hygienic application and application asseed treatment on some crops, the news suddenly attracted the public in China who are veryalert to such kind of food safety event in recent years, based on CCM International’s latest issueof Crop Protection China News.However, different from other banned pesticide products used on agricultural produces whichwere exposed by media, many insiders in China took an attitude of being inured towards theillegal use of fipronil, and illegally adding fipronil into insecticide products as recessivecomposition is an open secret in domestic pesticide market. It is believed that this phenomenonmay be caused by the incomplete ban on fipronil in China.As a highly efficient insecticide, fipronil owns an excellent control effect against a wide range ofpests on a variety of crops, especially the pests on rice like rice brown plant hopper. However,owing to its high toxicity to aquatic organisms and bees and long-lasting residue in soil and water,the Chinese government planned to ban the use of fipronil to protect the environment.On 25 Feb., 2009, Chinas Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Industry and Information Technologyand Ministry of Environmental Protection jointly released a notice to stop the approval ofregistration and production applications of formulations containing fipronil and to ban theproduction of related formulations from 1 April, 2009. The use and sales of pesticide formulationscontaining fipronil were banned from 1 Oct., 2009.However, eyeing the good capacity of fipronil in managing cockroach and soil insects, theChinese government didnt cancel the registration of fipronil formulation applied for sanitary pestsand seed treatment. Besides, the production of fipronil TC for export and as the raw material offipronil formulations for export were also not banned.Therefore, there are still many companies that got registration of fipronil in China. According tothe information from China Pesticide Information Network, up to 4 June, 2012, 59 kinds of fipronil
  2. 2. products from 25 pesticide enterprises in China got production registration, including TC, SE,seed treatment agent, sanitary insecticide, etc.As the production and use of fipronil as sanitary insecticide and seed treatment agent areallowed, it is difficult to ensure that all the pesticide enterprises, dealers and peasants in Chinawill completely obey the banning law. As there is still no high-efficiency product in China toreplace fipronil in managing flea beetle and thrips on vegetables, the complete ban on the use offipronil in vegetable planting areas, especially in southern part of China, is still a very toughproblem. Moreover, the regular insecticides from large pesticide enterprises are now facing anincreasing insecticide resistance of vegetable insects, adding fipronil as recessive composition inregular insecticides becomes very popular in these areas.Actually, fipronil is also illegally used in rice planting areas in China. Although some high efficientand low toxicity products have been developed and introduced to China, such aschlorantraniliprole and ethiprole, the higher profit of selling fipronil allows it to be illegally andfrequently used in many rice planting areas in China.Source: Crop Protection China News 1211http://www.cnchemicals.com/Newsletter/NewsletterDetail_16.htmlContent of Crop Protection China News 1211:Fipronil detected using on vegetablesTurbofus still popular in main sugarcane planting areasNew pesticide solvents for EW formulation developedMollic decreases sharply in ChinaRegulations on Agricultural Insurance to be releasedABA Chemicals to firstly involve in pesticide industryAnhui Huilong to further expand in South ChinaNantong Jiangshan to sell subsidiaryEx-factory price of abamectin 95% TC increases sharply in early June 2012Crop Protection China News, a semimonthly publication issued by CCM International on 15thand 30th(31st) of every month, aims to gain a deep insight into Chinese market, supply the latestmarket data and strategy support, analyze the newest legislation and policy and grasp the futuremarket trend.About CCM
