The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) invites comment on the proposed use of flupyradifurone in the product Sivanto Prime 200 SL Insecticide for use in animal feeds (bean forage and fodder) and rotational cropping situations. 

The APVMA has before it an application from Bayer CropScience Pty Ltd to vary the registration of Sivanto Prime 200 SL Insecticide (containing flupyradifurone) to add uses on selected tropical fruit (avocado, mango and papaya) and vegetables (cucurbits, fruiting vegetables other than cucurbits, green beans, potatoes and sweet potatoes). The proposed primary crops are not significant export commodities according to the APVMA Regulatory Guidelines – Data Guidelines: Agricultural - Overseas trade (Part 5B). 

However, a use is proposed on green beans, the forage and fodder of which may be fed to livestock. The proposed use of flupyradifurone on vegetables is also the first use in Australia in rotational cropping situations and has the potential to cause detectable residues in rotational or following crops that are major export commodities and are significant feeds for livestock, such as cereals, oilseeds and pulses. 

The potential for the proposed use to result in residues in animal commodities and rotational crops which are major export commodities (such as cereals, oilseeds and pulses) will be discussed in this Trade Advice Notice.
