Pesticide guide updates crop-use details

Revised expiry dates of existing pesticides are detailed in the latest edition of The UK Pesticide Guide, published by the British Crop Production Council (BCPC).

It includes details of compliance with EC Regulation 1107/2009, in force since June 2011, along with many new extensions of authorisation for specialist crops.

According to editor, Martin Lainsbury: "This year's guide shows that many products have been issued with new expiry dates and some, which were due to expire, have now been granted extensions.

However, he added: "On the downside, a number of products have been lost, so this edition will identify what products can still be legally used and what must be safely disposed of from pesticide stores."

BASIS members can also earn two continuing professional development points by buying the 700-page guide, which costs £44.50. It is also available online at www.plantprotection.co.uk.
