BCPC’s Online UK Pesticide Guide provides the latest position with regards new entrants and approvals for products approved for use.
The following updates have been made to the UKPG database for January 2024.

  • Syngenta has a new fungicide mixture for blight control in potatoes – amisulbrom + mandipropamid which is approved as Evagio Plus (M 20756) and which is currently listed as PAR in UKPG while I await details of the label claims.
  • Albaugh UK have a new approval for metsulfuron-methyl + tribenuron-methyl called Blusky (M20777) which mirrors the existing Albaugh product Broudha that they inherited from Rotam. It is currently listed as PAR in the UKPG on-line database.
  • Corteva have gained approval for a novel herbicide mixture of halauxifen-methyl + pyroxsulam that is formulated as a WDG. It is called Memphis (M20659) and is approved for use on wheat, spelt, triticale and rye. It is currently listed as PAR in UKPG while Corteva decide whether it will be marketed and supply me with a label text.
