Europe: Progress of the Nematicide Stewardship Programme

Nematicides have come under considerable scrutiny recently, not only from European regulators but from environmentalists, health professionals and the general public. However, nematicide manufacturers say the use of these products will remain critical to many growers in producing a quality product and maintaining current rotations. The Nematicide Stewardship Programme (NSP) group was formed in 2015 to work alongside farmers and operators to ensure adherence to ‘best practice’ for all nematicide applications. The NSP group is a joint initiative which brings agrochemical companies Certis, DuPont and Syngenta together for the first time and includes cross-industry support from AIC, AHDB, the Fresh Potatoes Suppliers Association, NFU, the Potato Processors Association (PPA) and Richard Austin Agriculture, all geared towards ensuring the products remain available for future use on potatoes and other key root crops.
