Important: New expiry dates, EAMUs & product approvals

The European Union has recently decided not to renew the approval of chlorothalonil and all products containing chlorothalonil will be subject to a phased withdrawal. This will mean the loss of 92 products from the UKPG database and make the management of disease resistance much more difficult.

This is just one of a number of changes that have occurred since the publication of the UK Pesticide Gude 2019.  However, to ensure farmers, advisers and all those in the crop production sector are kept up to speed, BCPC’s UKPG editor, Martin Lainsbury, maintains the Online UK Pesticide Guide with all these updates throughout the year.
