2017 Label Announcement

Slug pellet labels remain the same for 2017 applications.

Colin Myram, agronomist with Chiltern Farm Chemicals confirms that slug pellet usage guidelines as described on product labels will remain the same for 2017. “This means that farmers and agronomists can control slugs within the same guidelines as previous years”, comments Mr Myram. Although re-registration of Metaldehyde has been due since 2015, delays at the governments Chemicals Registration Division(CRD) continue to create uncertainty around the use of this critical active. The most recent delay has confirmed that Metaldehyde can be used for the 2017 season, but will remain under the same guidelines as 2016.

“The industry is making great efforts to demonstrate its responsible use of slug pellets”, continues Mr Myram, “and we would always advise farmers to follow best practice whilst applying the lowest dose possible. Our research over the years has shown that 1.5% Metaldehyde applied at 4kg consistently delivers the same efficacy as higher dosage rates, giving the industry an even better opportunity to demonstrate its responsible use of pesticides”
