CIPC authorizations in Britain amended to accommodate the fresh potato sector

Last week AHDB Potatoes advised potato growers on the various levels of Chlorpropham (CIPC) allowable in various sectors of the potato market amid the COVID-19 crisis. As part of AHDB’s work with NFU, PPA, FPSA and others, the organization says that it is pleased to report now that today (9 April) the Potato Industry CIPC Stewardship Group (PICSG) announced the following: 

CIPC authorisations have been amended by the Chemicals Regulation Direcorate.

Potatoes treated with CIPC at rates between 24 and 36 grams per tonne may now be marketed using fresh supply chains, as long as crops are tested and are known to comply with the MRL.

Sampling of tubers for residue testing must be carried out according to EC Directive 2002/63/EC. Instructions for obtaining a sample can be found below.
