Canada to phase-out quinoxyfen fungicide

The Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) is cancelling the registration of Quinoxyfen Technical Fungicide and Quintec Fungicide, containing the technical grade active ingredient quinoxyfen, as it meets the criteria for Track 1 substances under the Toxic Substances Management Policy (TSMP).

In order to allow for the phase-out of Quinoxyfen Technical Fungicide and Quintec Fungicide for use on a variety of fruit and vegetable crops, the PMRA requires that the following implementation timelines are followed:

  • Date of Last Sale by Registrant: 30 June 2019

  • Last Date of Permitted Use by Users: 30 June 2021.
