Imidacloprid in the product Gaucho 350 Flowable Seed Dressing Insecticide

The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has before it an application from Bayer CropScience Pty Ltd to extend the use of GAUCHO 350 FLOWABLE SEED DRESSING INSECTICIDE, containing the active ingredient imidacloprid at 350 g/L, to faba beans, field peas and lentils for control of aphids. As a result of this application, changes are also proposed to the withholding period and MRL associated with the registered use pattern for lupins.

The potential for imidacloprid residues in these commodities to unduly prejudice trade is discussed below.

No changes to animal commodity MRLs are required and they will not be considered further.
