Joint statement from UK RAGs on resistance and labellingqrcode

Favorites Print Dec. 25, 2017
In recent weeks, each of the UK Resistance Action Groups (weed, fungicide and insecticide) have separately met and agreed that, whilst it needs careful implementation, the inclusion of mode of action labelling for products should be actively considered with a view to implementation. 
 
Resistance is probably the greatest threat to product efficacy. The combined impact of few new active substances, and even fewer modes of action, and the increasing loss of existing products means that this risk will increase. Common aspects of all resistance management strategies are to prevent repeat treatment of survivors with the same mode of action and to rotate modes of action. The RAGs have therefore agreed that greater prominence of the mode of action will help farmers and agronomists make informed decisions. 
 
Recognising that many products already contain mixtures and that within modes of action risk is not always identical, the RAGs have all agreed that to get to a practical outcome they encourage CRD to work with CPA members to increase visibility of the information. For instance it may be better to ask for greater use of mode of action information in product technical literature, but it may also be helpful to include it in product labels. 
 
The RAGs have all offered their support in those discussions and look forward to working with CRD and manufacturers to agree practical, clear and helpful advice when making product choice decisions.
