Agrichem Hy-Pro Duet (prochloraz + thiram) has been given approval for minor use on Linseed (spring and winter) as a seed treatment, under MAPP No. 14018 and Authorisation No. 0148 of 2017. (10th January 2017)
"This is excellent news! - The lack of an approved seed treatment fungicide for linseed seed has been a serious isssue since the removal of Prelude from the market last year." said Nigel Padbury, Seeds Manager for Premium Crops Ltd, "Linseed is one of only a few arable crops where minimum standards for seed borne diseases are applied at Seed Certification. Without an effective seed treatment the number of seed crops rejected due to disease was rising, with the innevitable risk to both seed costs and availability of prefered varieties"
The application for the Extension of Authorisation was lead by Agrii, supported by consortium of interested companies including Premium Crops.
