CIPC Stewardship Group

The Potato Industry CIPC Stewardship Group (PICSG) is a collaboration between key industry organisations that came together to promote the stewardship of the sprout suppressant CIPC. The Group comprises all the companies that held the approvals for CIPC formulations (Aceto Agrochemical Corporation, Arysta, Certis, Dormfresh and United Phosphorus Limited), the Potato Processors Association, the Fresh Potato Suppliers Association, the National Association of Agricultural Contractors (NAAC), Red Tractor Farm Assurance and other potato storage specialists.

The 'Be CIPC Compliant’ initiative was formed by the Group in 2013 to develop the campaign activity, and to provide an industry identity. Delivering a call to action to all within the potato supply chain, to 'Be CIPC Compliant' means to proactively respond to the serious issues surrounding the use of the potato sprout suppressant CIPC, and to follow best practice guidance.

Following the non-renewal of approvals for CIPC in 2020, the group is now concerned with managing residues in previously treated stores and co-ordinating information on any tMRL that may be introduced in GB.
