New efficacy working document summarising UK major pests, diseases and weeds

Date: 5 June 2019

The first version of the working document “CRD Efficacy Working Document Summarising UK Major ‘Pests’ (Diseases, Pests and Weeds) on a Range of UK Crops“ provides a summary of the range of ‘major’ UK insect pests, diseases, slugs and weeds for the following crops: sugar beet, onion and leek, carrot, grassland, pea, field bean, strawberry, apple and pear. It also gives some indication of the required number of fully supportive effectiveness trials (whereas crop safety is not specifically addressed). This working document is part of a series of crop specific guidance under development, or already available to be used in trial planning, providing reasoned cases for the relevance of data in supporting UK uses and drafting appropriate UK labels.
