Bayer AG has just announced that its agricultural unit will halt future U.S. sales of its insecticide flubendiamide.

Known commonly as Belt, flubendiamide has the capacity to be used on more than 200 crops including soybeans, tobacco and almonds.

Many of these crops will receive as many as six applications a year according to the EPA.

Flubendiamide is the active ingredient in Nichino America’s Tourismo and Vetica insecticides as well as in Bayer’s Belt brand.

The insecticide sales are being halted as a result of Bayer losing a fight with the EPA over the insecticide’s risk to the environment.

The EPA board did rule that farmers and retailers will be able to sell and use their existing supplies.

Bayer maintains that the EPA has made an error in judgement.

“Bayer maintains the EPA’s actions on flubendiamide are unlawful and inconsistent with sound regulatory risk assessment practices,” Dana Sargent, Vice President for Regulatory Affairs for Bayer said in a statement.
