El Salvador: Use of 53 Chemicals Banned
Despite opinions to the contrary, the new law includes Paraquat, Glyphosate and Endosulfan in the list of chemicals banned from use in agricultural production.
Friday, September 6, 2013
From a press release by the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources:
The Legislature will not accept Presidential comments on Act 53 which prohibits the use of agrochemicals, and will only increase the timeframe for their withdrawal.
The regulation increases the size of the "aguinaldo" (extra salary at the end of the year), depending on the number of worked years.
Salvadoran coffee growers have asked for a review of the rule stating that there arent any alternative measures which provide the same levels of efficiency and coverage.
Voters in El Salvador are showing a strong preference for the leftist former rebel Farabundo Martí Liberation Front (FMLN) in next year's general elections, according to a poll by Utec, a private technological university.
