Updated regulation governing the registration of pesticides in Costa Rica

Updated regulation RTCR 484/2016 on synthetic pesticide formulations, active ingredients and other substances for agricultural use was published last month in the official gazette.

It will enter into force six months after the mid-January publication.

It will also facilitate farmers’ access to new and more innovative formulations that are more environmentally friendly and lead to a reduction in applications and lower costs.
Luis Felipe Arauz Cavallini, Minister of Agriculture

One step forward for Dextra International to keep working on assisting with the regulatory requirements.
