India restricts use of two pesticides
India has restricted the use of two pesticides because of health and environmental concerns. The organophosphate insecticide/acaricide, diazinon, has been banned for agricultural use, though it may still be used for household purposes. Companies that manufacture diazinon-based products will have to add the warning "banned for use on agriculture" to their products' labels. The other restricted pestcide is dazomet, a soil fumigant with fungicidal/herbicidal properties. It has been banned for use in tea and labels on products containing dazomet will have to proclaim the fact.
