Dinotefuran in the Product Starkle 200 SG Insecticide on mung beans

The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has before it an application from AgNova Technologies Pty Ltd, to vary the registration of Starkle 200 SG Insecticide containing dinotefuran to include a new use on mung beans. 

Mung beans are considered to be a major export commodity, as are commodities of animal origin, such as meat, offal and dairy products, which may be derived from livestock fed on feeds produced from treated mung bean grains, forage and/or fodder. Residues in these commodities resulting from the use of Starkle 200 SG Insecticide may have the potential to unduly prejudice trade.
