BCPC Online UK Pesticide Guide launches new features

BCPC (British Crop Protection Council) has relaunched its Online UK Pesticide Guide platform with new features including a  product search and comparison tool.


The online version of the widely-used guide, affectionally referred to as the ‘Green Book’, is a practical guide to all pesticides, plant growth regulators and adjuvants that can be legally and effectively used in the UK. The resource is used throughout  agriculture, and is a reference manual for sprayer operators, growers, advisors, agronomists and industry professionals.


BCPC’s Julian Westaway said: “Having access to the latest pesticide information is vital for all those involved in their use and application. The UK Pesticide Guide, in both its online and print version, is the one-stop database for all pesticide products approved in the UK, including the latest active ingredient profiles, new products and formulations. The online version has undergone modifications to its look and feel as well as improved functionality to support your crop protection decisions, giving users access to in-depth product data, clearly presented for easy reference.”

The product comparison tool allows users to tailor their search by multiple attributes, which can be filtered and sorted.

“For a farmer it is a particularly useful tool when buying pesticides, allowing comparison between similar products which, for example, may have different aquatic or arthropod buffer requirements or maximum rates/ha. Users are also able to select products with simpler buffer zone requirements to reduce the complexity of recent pesticide regulations and aid compliance. For others it may save time when planning pesticide use, in accessing product information and safety data sheets or just comparing products,” said Mr Westaway.
