New restrictions on epoxiconazole

24 April 2020

There are new restrictions on the use of epoxiconazole as this azole has dropped at unexpected speed into a final use up period.  Authorisations for sale and supply end on 31 October 2020 and authorisations for disposal, storage and use end on 31 October 2021. But of importance, this season is the concern raised by the Chemical Regulations Directorate about a risk to birds and so there is guidance not to apply products containing epoxiconazole at 83 g a.s./ha or higher to cereals before GS40, to help to mitigate this risk.
