As part of the chlorothalonil task force Sipcam have championed the use of chlorothalonil in UK agriculture particularly in cereal fungicide disease control where the threat of resistance to other actives is a constant risk, and alternative products are limited.

We have fought hard on a European level to retain this key active but regrettably the EU Standing Committee voted for non-renewal of chlorothalonil approval.

The use up/sell out period has yet to be defined, and so the use of this key part of your anti-resistance strategy should continue.

Sipcam will keep you informed as and when the UK authorities announce the use up/sell out period.
