REUSSIR 30/10/20 Fongicide/pommes de terre : l’anti-mildiou mancozèbe interdit en 2021. Très utilisé sur pomme de terre entre autres, le mancozèbe sera interdit de commercialisation dès le 31 janvier 2021 mais son utilisation restera possible durant l’année avec un délai restant à fixer par chaque État, de façon à écouler les stocks restants des produits contenant cette matière active.

REUSSIR 30/10/20 Fongicide/pommes de terre : l’anti-mildiou mancozèbe interdit en 2021

JO SENAT 06/08/20 Réponse à question 15601 de Mme Patricia Morhet-Richaud : Utilisation du mancozèbe en arboriculture. PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-001051/2020 Mancozeb. POTATO NEWS TODAY 14/04/19 Going without mancozeb in Canada. "Currently under review in Canada, mancozeb is a potato industry staple for fighting late blight and early blight.

POTATO NEWS TODAY 14/04/19 Going without mancozeb in Canada

Its proponents fear its loss would spell higher production costs for farmers and would remove a vital tool for managing disease resistance in potatoes. Canadian potato farmers could be facing higher production costs with the potential loss of a key weapon against late blight. Mancozeb is a relatively inexpensive, Group M fungicide that’s used extensively in Canada to combat late blight and early blight, with some growers applying the chemical up to 10 times per season on their potato fields. The broad-spectrum fungicide is currently under review by Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency due to concerns related to human health and environmental safety.

EFSA 27/05/16 Modification of the existing maximum residue level for mancozeb (expressed as carbon disulfide) in persimmons. Abstract In accordance with Article 6 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, the evaluating Member State (EMS), Spain, received an application from United Phosphorus Ltd. to modify the existing maximum residue level (MRL) for the active substance mancozeb in persimmons.

To accommodate for the intended use of mancozeb, Spain proposed to raise the existing MRL from the limit of quantification of 0.05 to 0.2 mg/kg. Spain drafted an evaluation report in accordance with Article 8 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, which was submitted to the European Commission and forwarded to EFSA. According to EFSA, the data are sufficient to derive a MRL proposal of 0.2 mg/kg (expressed as carbon disulfide) for the proposed use on persimmons. Adequate analytical enforcement methods are available to control the residues of carbon disulfide on persimmons.

PLOS 04/05/15 Pesticide Side Effects in an Agricultural Soil Ecosystem as Measured by amoA Expression Quantification and Bacterial Diversity Changes. Abstract Background and Methods Assessing the effects of pesticide hazards on microbiological processes in the soil is currently based on analyses that provide limited insight into the ongoing processes.

PLOS 04/05/15 Pesticide Side Effects in an Agricultural Soil Ecosystem as Measured by amoA Expression Quantification and Bacterial Diversity Changes

This study proposes a more comprehensive approach. The side effects of pesticides may appear as changes in the expression of specific microbial genes or as changes in diversity. To assess the impact of pesticides on gene expression, we focused on the amoA gene, which is involved in ammonia oxidation. Results and Conclusion Treatment with dazomet reduced both the bacterial and archaeal amoA transcript numbers by more than two log units and produced long-term effects for more than 28 days.

Oxidative Medicine and Cellular Longevity Volume 2018, Exposure of Drosophila melanogaster to Mancozeb Induces Oxidative Damage and Modulates Nrf2 and HSP70/83. Mancozeb (MZ), a manganese- and zinc-containing ethylene-bis-dithiocarbamate, is a broad-spectrum fungicide.

Harmful effects of this fungicide have been reported in nontarget organisms via a not fully understood mechanism. Drosophila melanogaster has provided remarkable contributions for toxicological studies. This work was aimed at evaluating the biochemical targets and implication of oxidative stress in MZ-mediated toxicity in drosophilas. Exposure of flies for fifteen days to MZ at 5 and 10 mg/mL through the diet impaired locomotor performance and induced fly mortality. In parallel, it caused lipid peroxidation and reactive oxygen species (ROS) formation and Mn overload. 1.

LE MONDE 02/12/19 Un avis scientifique sur un fongicide censuré par son fabricant (mancozèbe) C’est un curieux avis scientifique que l’Autorité européenne de sécurité des aliments (EFSA) a mis en ligne.

LE MONDE 02/12/19 Un avis scientifique sur un fongicide censuré par son fabricant (mancozèbe)

Le 20 novembre, l’agence chargée de l’évaluation des pesticides pour l’Union européenne (UE) publiait ses conclusions sur le mancozèbe, un fongicide utilisé sur le blé, la vigne, les pommes de terre et les tomates. « Des sujets de préoccupation sont identifiés », énonce le résumé, on ne peut plus clair. Impossible, pourtant, de savoir quels « domaines critiques » préoccupent tant l’agence : les mots qui l’explicitent ont été soigneusement caviardés. Comme par exemple : « La classification du mancozèbe en tant que [caviardé] et [caviardé]. » Une version non censurée, que Le Monde a pu consulter, permet de lire que le mancozèbe a été classifié « présumé toxique pour la reproduction (catégorie 1B) et que les critères sont remplis pour l’identifier comme perturbateur endocrinien pour les humains ».
