Spinosad in the Products ConserveTM Grain Protector and ConserveTM On-Farm Grain Protector

The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has before it an application from Dow AgroSciences to register the new products ConserveTM Grain Protector and ConserveTM On-Farm Grain Protector. ConserveTM Grain Protector contains 120 g/L spinosad and is proposed for use by bulk handlers only for the control of lesser grain borer in stored cereal grain. ConserveTM On-Farm Grain Protector is a two-part product (Part A containing 500 g/L chlorpyrifos-methyl and 30 g/L s-methoprene; Part B containing 120 g/L spinosad) for the on-farm control of insect pests in stored grain (except malting barley and rice). The proposed uses will require the establishment of permanent MRLs for spinosad in cereal grains. The use of chlorpyrifos-methyl and s-methoprene in the product ConserveTM On-Farm Grain Protector is consistent with currently approved on farm use of products containing these active constituents and no further consideration of these active constituents is required in this Trade Advice Notice.
