The start of the New Year has seen the arrival of the 30th edition of the UK Pesticide Guide –  jointly published by British Crop Production Council and CAB International.

The paper-based version is marketed as a quick but comprehensive reference guide to UK pesticide information, and is ideal to keep in the office or tractor cab. But the online version, which is now easily accessible on smart phones and tablets, offers a lot more than the book.

Additional content, latest news and developments and links to the Chemicals Regulation Directive (CRD) online database of Maximum Residue Levels (MRLs) are all included in the online version, which is available at

Editor Martin Lainsbury said he “strongly recommended” that users invest in both the hard copy and the online version. Mr Lainsbury said: “The online resource enables us to run frequent updates, add appropriate EAMUs and include new approvals as soon as they come on stream.

The online database includes new Solatenol SDHI fungicide products from Syngenta (Elatus Era, Elatus Plus, Ceratavo Plus and Velogy Plus); a new cereal herbicide combination from DuPont (Provalia LQM) and a new cereal herbicide combination from BASF (Quirinus).

Mr Lainsbury said: “It is much more comprehensive and up-to-date than the book.” BASIS members would benefit by earning two CPD points when purchasing the book and three CPD points when subscribing to the online resource, he added.

Copies of the UK Pesticide Guide 2017 can be ordered now priced £52.50, or save £31.50 and get the complete package of the book and online resource for £99. For full details, and to order online, visit
