Vietnam bans import of glyphosate herbicides after US cancer trial verdict

Vietnam has announced that it has banned the import of all glyphosate -based herbicides with immediate effect following the latest cancer trial verdict from San Francisco, in a move which has shaken Bayer’s Asian market for its top-selling product.

Hoang Trung, Director of the Plant Protection Department under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, stated Saturday to Tuoi Tre newspaper that the import and trans-national trading of herbicides containing glyphosate would be banned immediately. Glyphosate herbicides are currently widely used in Vietnam.

“As soon as there was information that the second trial in the U.S. ruled that glyphosate was related to cancer, we put a ban on the import of new herbicides containing the active ingredient. And the removal of this substance from the list of pesticides allowed to be used in Vietnam will be done in the near future,” Trung said.

Trung added that to prohibit a certain substance that has been circulated his department must proceed with the correct legal procedures.. The new Plant Protection Department has prohibited the import of new shipments of glyphosate-based herbicides, while the consignments of glyphosate-based herbicides currently in circulation in Vietnam will still trade normally.

In 2017 the Vietnamese government also officially announced a ban on paraquat, a highly hazardous pesticide (HHP) and 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D), an organic compound found in Agent Orange, which was heavily used during the Vietnam War.
