 The Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed (SCoPAFF) met on 23 and 24 October 2018 to discuss the approval of chlorpropham. The CIPC Task Force have released an update following the meeting. Click here to read the Task Force update.

CIPC remains available to the industry for the 2018-19 season and stewardship is essential to comply with label requirements and minimise the risk of any MRL exceedances.

As part of the industry's stewardship initiative, the AHDB has implemented a programme of research and KE activities that continue to develop best practice for integrated sprout control. These include:

  • trials on CIPC alongside and in combination with alternatives for both fresh and processing markets.
  • maleic hydrazide trials and review.
  • variety dormancy assessments.
  • CIPC residue management in previously treated stores.
