2,4-D high volatile ester products (September 2013)

Recently, the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) announced that 2,4-D high volatile ester products may no longer be used.

This decision will have no direct impact on Tasmania, as 2,4-D high volatile ester products have not been registered for use in this State for some years.

Please note that the APVMA decision does not apply to 2,4-D amine and low volatile ester products. They will still be registered for use in Tasmania and in other states.
