Pendimethalin's testament : impact assessment of the use of pendimethalin in agricultural weed control

Abstract

In 2009, the EU introduced a new Regulation (EC) No. 1107/2009, concerning the placing of plant protection products on the market. Amongst others, this regulation defines more stringent approval criteria for the risk assessment of active substances. This will have consequences for the future availability of active substances currently on the market, as the approval of substances not meeting the criteria may be withdrawn or renewed for a limited period. Among these active substances is pendimethalin, produced by BASF. Pendimethalin is used in weed control in arable crops and flower bulbs. To obtain insight into the consequences of a potential withdrawal of pendimethalin's approval for Dutch crop production, BASF has asked LEI to perform an impact assessment. This report presents the results of the assessment, which is restricted to farm- and sector-level economic impacts and focuses on onions and flower bulbs as case studies.
