Chemical crop protection

Plant protection chemicals, or chemical pest control, is the control of diseases and pests in the horticultural sector by means of the use of chemical pesticides. The use of crop protection chemicals, also known as pesticides, keeps diseases and pests out and increases the quality and yield of the crop.

Types of crop protection chemicals

Pesticides can be divided into fungicides, herbicides, insecticides, nematicides, rodenticides, algicide, acaricide and molluscicide. Below you will find an explanation of the different types of plant protection chemicals:
  • Fungicides: is a pesticide against diseases caused by fungi;
  • Herbicides: is a Latin translation for herb. This means that herbicide is a chemical pesticide against weeds;
  • Insecticides: is a chemical pesticide against insecticides;
  • Nematicides: a chemical plant protection product with which you can fight plant parasitic nematodes (such as the root knot nematode and the root lesion nematode) in the soil;
  • Rodenticides: is a rodenticide;
  • Algicide: a chemical pesticide against algae.
  • Acaricide: acaricide is a chemical plant protection product to control sapwood and in some cases also white fly;
  • Molluscicide: a chemical pesticide against snails.
In addition to the various groups of crop protection chemicals, the agents within these groups are divided into various categories: systemic agents, contact agents, translaminating agents, soil working agents and covering agents. Each crop protection product has its own effect and application. Moreover, not every chemical pesticide may be applied in all crops. That is why it is always important to consult the pest control chemical label first.

Working safely with crop protection chemicals 

If you want to buy pesticides, please pay attention to the safety information on the label of the pesticide. The safety data sheet or MSDS document shows whether the pesticide may be sold. Contact our specialists to receive all information regarding the authorisation of crop protection chemicals.
