British Crop Production Council guide to pesticides updated

The British Crop Production Council has updated its guide to pesticides with new combinations and actives.

The UK Pesticide Guide 2013 is aimed at anyone needing information on responsible chemical use and which pesticides are legal to use.

The latest edition reflects changes in the approval process caused by the enactment of EC regulation 1107/2009, which came into force in June 2011.

"Products are listed by their active ingredient profile and whilst nine of these have been deleted, 11 new ones have been added," said The UK Pesticide Guide editor Martin Lainsbury.

"Some of these listings are new combinations of existing actives but some are genuinely new actives and although some are niche products at least we are seeing new actives receiving approval despite the higher environmental hurdles to be met."

The book is worth two CPD points for BASIS members.
