Chemical crop protection

Chemical plant protection is the control of diseases and pests in the horticultural sector by means of the use of chemical pesticides. The use of chemical crop protection agents, also known as pesticides, keeps diseases and pests out and increases the quality and yield of the crop.
  • What are the standards for residues of crop protection products?

    When chemical crop protection products are used, residue of the used products may remain on the treated crop. A large amount of residue on fruit and vegetable can lead to health risks for consumers. Therefore, legal residue standards for food products have been established to ensure food safety.

  • What are the side-effects of chemical crop protection products?

    Growers are increasingly using natural enemies to control pests in their crops. This responds to the ever-increasing consumer demand for organically grown products and reduces the risk of resistance to certain crop protection products. However, sometimes the use of a chemical crop protection product is necessary for correction. To learn about the side-effects read this page.

  • How to prevent resistance to crop protection products

    Diseases, bacteria and weeds can become insensitive to crop protection products. When this happens, they can neutralise the effect of certain products and thus these products have no (or less) effect. In that case, we speak of resistance. The number of resistance to plant protection products has increased considerably in recent years, which is a problem for the control of diseases and pests.

  • What do hazard symbols/ CLP icons mean?

    Hazard symbols or CLP pictograms are clear and recognizable signs added to the packaging of products containing dangerous substances, such as fertilizers and chemical plant protection products. These hazard symbols or CLP pictograms ensure that transporters and users are aware of the risks brought by the products. This is very important for the safe transport and use of the products. It is therefore essential to be aware of the meaning of the various hazard symbols, which you can read here.

  • What is integrated pest management?

    Consumers are increasingly interested in organically grown products. Issues such as sustainability, the environment and food safety also play an increasingly important role in their purchasing decisions. The use of biological crop protection responds to this. But sometimes biological crop protection alone is not enough. Many growers therefore opt for integrated crop protection. Read more about this approach here.
