All permits issued allowing the use of pesticides which include Gly-Phosate have been cancelled.

Pesticides Registrar Dr. G A W Wijesekara stated that the relevant gazette notification has already been issued.

He stated that the decision was taken after the chemical was found to be a reason for the Kidney decease spreading in certain regions of the country.

However, Tea Planters has said that banning the chemical may affect their industry.
