Canada improves reduced-risk pesticide record:

There were twice as many reduced-risk pesticides registered or pending approval in Canada than in the US in the two years to September 30th 2007. The addition of six such active ingredients to the 38 listed by the Canadian Pest Management Regulatory Agency in September 2005 brought the total to 44. Three more registrations in the US brought the total there to 61. Approvals for Dow AgroSciences' insecticide, spinetoram, were pending in both countries in September 2007, but registrations were granted by year end. This was one of 13 ais subject to joint reviews or work sharing.
