The Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare issued a draft buy on Monday banning these 27 pesticides and has provided forty five days for the business and firms producing this kind of substances to file their objections, if any.
The draft buy – identified as Banning of Insecticides Purchase 2020 – prohibits import, manufacture, sale, transport, distribution and use of this kind of insecticides. The pesticides in the proposed listing are: Acephate, Atrazine, Benfuracarb, Butachlor, Captan, Carbofuran, Chlorpyriphos, two,four-D, Deltamethrin, Dicofol, Dimethoate, Dinocap, Diuron, Malathion, Mancozeb, Methomyl, Oxyfluorfen, Pendimethalin, Quinalphos and Sulfosulfuron
