CHLOROTHALONIL WITHDRAWAL DATES

The sell out/use up period for all chlorothalonil containing products has been published by CRD. Authorisation ends: (a) 20 November 2019 for sale and distribution & (b) 20 May 2020 for the disposal, storage and use of existing stocks. Full details can be found at the link here.

NON RENEWAL OF CHLOROTHALONIL APPROVAL

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.

MOHAWK CS & SIRTAKI CS UPDATE

Sipcam’s microencapsulated clomazone herbicide products Mohawk CS & Sirtaki CS can be used on a wider range of crops than before and no longer have a 10m non-target plant buffer zone. Peas, beans and carrots are added to the labels which already included winter and spring oilseed rape and potatoes.

In addition to removal of the buffer zone the hazard phase has been removed from the labels. Technical update sheets can be found for Mohawk CS here  and Sirtaki CS hereRevised labels will be posted to the products page as soon as possible.

Also a Mohawk CS press release is available here and a link to a CPM magazine item.

Sipcam UK announces new Technical Manager

Avoid N deficiencies with Efficient N

With the recent wet weather crops are in danger of developing N deficiencies. Heavy rain washes away soil mineral nitrogen and applied nitrogen, causing problems as crops start rapidly growing. Sipcam’s Efficient N is a combination of readily absorbed N in both the ureic and urea polymer forms designed to support strong and healthy crop development. Ureic N is readily converted to protein for growth, whilst Polymer N releases N as crops mature. For more details click here.
