USDA Agricultural Marketing Service has published a notice in the Federal Register that it has reopened the public comment period on Amendments to the National List of Allowed and Prohibited Substances. The extended 30-day comment period will close May 14, 2018. The proposed rule would add 16 substances to the list of those allowed in organic production and handling, prohibit ivermectin in organic livestock production, prohibit use of rotenone, and change 17 substances already on the National List to reflect current farming or processing practices and needs. Interested persons may comment on the proposed rule using the Federal eRulemaking Portal: http://www.regulations.gov.
