Non-renewal of CIPC in Europe leaves room for other sprout suppression methods

The non-renewal of CIPC in the European market has left a huge gap in the potato storage sprout suppression market and growers are urgently looking for alternatives for their potato crops.

Being aware of the potential for CIPC’s non-renewal, Restrain lead by Global Sales Director Dirk Garos, made significant investments in the business, enabling the company to increase its manufacturing capacity at its production facility in The Netherlands and therefore ensuring that it has the capacity needed to fill the gap left by CIPC.

Restrain’s generators have been used for potato storage for over 14 year and are fitted with unique sensors which maintain a stable, low level of ethylene, which is vital for the safe storage of potatoes.

Following a series of successful variety trials, Restrain technology has recently been adopted by the global potato processing sector. The sector, which has traditionally used CIPC and other storage chemicals, has seen a global trend towards more sustainable, chemical free solutions, so Restrain meets these requirements and just at the right time, according to Garos.
