Choosing the right products to use during the spraying season is now becoming more important than ever.
And despite many products losing their registration, there are still over 1,300 approved pesticide products in the UK – so anything which speeds up the time it takes to select the right product for the job has got to be a bonus.
In an initiative devised by BCPC and the NFU – and which compliments the other NFU on-line services – NFU members can now benefit from 20% discount off the web based product www.plantprotection.co.uk which would normally cost £60 + VAT. This regularly updated, dynamic resource was launched by BCPC in 2008 to provide farmers, advisers and growers with easy on-line access to authoritative and reliable information on pesticides and adjuvants for use in UK agriculture, horticulture, forestry and amenity situations.
To benefit from the 20% special offer, NFU members should contact the NFU Call Centre (Contact: NFU Callfirst 0870 8458458) for a unique discount code which will be needed to complete the payment section of the registration system when going on-line to subscribe.
“The latest plant protection data went live on 12 January 2009,” explains BCPC’s general manager, Chris Todd, “so our on-line resource is right up-to-date. That is why we are delighted to have linked with the NFU so that its members can gain access to the information they need to meet their legal obligations and the requirements of assurance schemes and cross-compliance in various government initiatives.”
The on-line service, at www.plantprotection.co.uk, offers all that appears in the annually produced UK Pesticide Guide plus more. It is regularly updated throughout the year and provides users with the latest product news and developments. The easy-to-use search menus also allow customised searches and there are links to SOLA notices and the PSD on-line database for MRLs.
