CIPC Stewardship is an issue for the entire supply chain, and purchasers are urged to play their part by demonstrating that due diligence measures are in place, and actively promoted, to ensure all supplies are CIPC compliant.
This will provide the necessary assurances that crops entering the market place have been subject to appropriate scrutiny.
The CIPC Stewardship Group includes both the Potato Processors' Association, and the Fresh Potatoes Suppliers' Association.
“The future use of CIPC is in our hands. We must be more stringent in our application process including asking ourselves, is the store suitable for CIPC? ... we are continuing R&D to find more effective application methods and alternative products used alone or in combination''
David Walker, FPSA Chairman
"It is essential that the whole industry works together to support the Potato Industry CIPC Stewardship recommendations and takes every possible precaution to ensure this vital sprout suppressant remains available for use."
Sharon Hall, PPA Director General
