“EPA grants Nemacur extension”

From Golf Course Management:


Text from the above source:

“GCSAA learned yesterday that the EPA has granted its request for the extension of the end-use date for fenamiphos (Nemacur/Bayer). Golf course superintendents will now have until Oct. 6, 2017, to use existing stocks of Nemacur, an organophosphate-class chemical, which is used to control root-knot, root-lesion, sting, lance and ring nematodes. The extension amounts to a three-year reprieve for turfgrass managers, who were previously staring down an Oct. 6, 2014, cutoff for using exsisting stocks of Nemacur.
