Plant protection keeping on top of the latest pesticide news

Press Releasein Industry News

The UK Pesticide Guide's database has now been updated and uploaded to ready for the coming spray season. With so many changes taking place to pesticide legislation and product availability, a resource that helps you with your product selection, at such a busy time of year, has got to be a must.

Important changes that are now included on PlantProtection include the addition of new products:

• SPITFIRE from Dow;
• IGNITE, an EC formulation of epoxiconazole from BASF;
• INTRUDER, a new chlorpropham product from Agrichem BV.

Two products SCALA and INVADER, both from BASF, have new MAPP numbers and additional crop recommendations and a further 42 new SOLAs have also been entered.

"With a whole raft of new SOLAs likely to be coming through in the near future it is proposed that the database will be updated again at the end of April, " advises Martin Lainsbury, editor of The UK Pesticide Guide. "And with so many changes expected in the future we are now planning on updating PlantProtection bi-monthly unless there are not sufficient changes to warrant it."

BASIS members should also note that they can earn 3 CPD points when subscribing to PlantProtection.
