Familiarly known as the ‘Green Book’, and its online equivalent at ukpesticideguide.co.uk, the Guide the essential reference for a wide range of audiences involved in pesticide use and recommendation. It covers all pesticide products and adjuvants approved for use in agriculture, amenity, forestry and horticulture, including new active ingredient profiles and many new formulations for a wide selection of different crops.
BCPC Managing Director Julian Westaway says: “Technical and business errors in farming can come at a high cost. The stakes are expected to get higher as our industry comes to terms with new legislation, changing the direction of UK farming from one of progressive intensification seen over the past 50 years, to one based on sustainability with any support aligned to the provision of public goods focused on the environment. So, when it comes to making those technical decisions surrounding the complex and potentially costly issues of crop protection, the UK Pesticide Guide 2022 is one of the best investments you make this year.”
The UK Pesticide Guide Online is updated throughout the year, a searchable database by product, active, mode of action, activity class and chemical class with additional information not found in the ‘Green Book’. The print version 2022 BCPC UK Pesticide Guide provides information on products valid for approval at the time the Guide went to print in November 2021.
The print version is available for £59.50 + P&P, with 50% discount for users purchasing an online subscription. Up to two BASIS points and two NRoSO points are available depending on the purchase option.
