Mancozeb could be back

Fungicide, mancozeb could still be available for Great Britain (GB) growers as the EU ban on the fungicide came into force on January 4, after the Brexit transition period had ended.

Agricultural Industries Confederation (AIC) head of crop protection and agronomy sector Hazel Doonan says this means the EU withdrawal date will not apply to Great Britain.

 

She says: “HSE confirmed that in GB, legislation provides that active substances which were due to expire in the EU within three years of December 31, 2020 [the end of the transition period] will be granted a three-year extension under the new GB regime.

 

“This means the expiry date of mancozeb will be extended for a further three years. However, HSE retains the power to review active substance approvals at any time.

 

“AIC understands the licence holder is seeking clarification from CRD on the authorisation of mancozeb products in GB.”
