Put more emphasis on inert ingredients to streamline pesticide registration
May 05, 2023
Inert ingredients are often under prioritized in pesticide registration strategies, with actives given more time and attention early in the process. However, both inert and active ingredients must be approved by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for inclusion in pesticide products. A lack of focus on inert ingredients can hinder, delay, or even prevent registration.
In this whitepaper our Head of Federal Affairs, Abigail Wacek, explains how to identify inert ingredients and ascertain their approval status. She also outlines key aspects of the inert petition process, including relevant updates from the Pesticide Registration Improvement Act of 2022 (PRIA 5).
