CTGB decisions July 2014 for greenhouse horticulture

At the July meeting of the Dutch Board for the authorization of plant protection products and biocides (Ctgb), a total of twenty-four admissions and four expansions were issued. For the greenhouse and summer flowers sectors, the following decisions are important: 

New authorised biocides 
Florissant 520, based on the active substance sodium hypochlorite. The agent is allowed to fight bacteria in water in harvesting containers and flower barrels, flower buckets and flower vases. It is a tool for professional use. 

Hyperclean based on the active substance sodium hypochlorite
The agent is allowed for use against bacteria (excluding bacterial spores), yeasts and viruses on surfaces and materials in greenhouses, other cultivation areas, empty storage and processing sites of substrates, seeds, plants (parts), flowers, tubers, bulbs, fruits and vegetables but with the proviso that use is not permitted in greenhouses and crop areas during cultivation, nor in areas where plant material is stored. It is a tool for professional use.

Extension of authorisation of plant protection
Amistar Top, based on the active ingredients azoxystrobin and difenoconazole. The expansion applies to the application of this fungicide in the cultivation of sugar beet, parsley root and parsnip and unprotected courgettes, celeriac, celery, fennel, ornamentals, perennials, ornamental cabbage and boxwood. It is a tool for professional use. This decision has come under the shortened procedure for small applications.
