Nigeria is now a safe place for banned and very harmful pesticides with active ingredient called endosulfan. According to experts, endosulfan is an organochlorine compound that is used as an insecticide and acaricide. They said that the colourless solid emerged as a highly controversial agrichemical due to its acute toxicity, potential for what they described as bioaccumulation, and role as an endoctrine disruptor. The chemical has been banned in more than 70 countries, including the European Union, several Asian and West African nations and in the United States.
Endosulfan is also used in cowpea and cotton plantations aside cocoa and its used to be widely patronized agrochemical across West African. Following banning of the chemical globally for use on agricultural crops, the chemical has lost its agro-relevance in other West African nations, but some unscrupulous elements still chose to trade on it across the West African states.
What you see is that, endosulfan is also used in cowpea and cotton apart from its usage for cocoa farms across West African farm lands but it has long been banned for all agricultural uses.
Few years back, Cocoa Research Institute of Nigeria (CIRN) has listed about 24 banned agrochemicals that are still being used in cocoa farms in Nigeria. According to reports, all chemicals with endosulfan as their active ingredient are banned for use on all agriculture undertakings.
The Institute has listed chemicals with the following as their active ingredients as being suitable for cocoa farming; chlorpyrifos, thiamethxam, copper oxide, metalaxyl (M) +CuO and copper hydroxide.
