Update on copper use

Use of Cuprokylt authorised

AHDB have advised that their application for authorisation for use of Cuprokylt will be authorised in time for the forthcoming season.  Details of the authorisation are still awaited and growers are advised that the authorisation will be granted only for a period of 120 days for use on organic potato crops.

This notification is for information only and growers must not use Cuprokylt on their crops for blight control until the authorisation is available.

Thanks to Defra and CRD personnel for their advice on this issue.
