1565: Bracken Control - response to the ban on Asulam

This briefing had been prepared by Simon Thorp of the Bracken Control Group

Year of Publication2012

Asulam is the only selective product for bracken control. It has been banned by the EU, though existing stocks can be used until the end of this year. An Emergency Authorisation will be applied for by the Bracken Control Group and, if successful this will be updated annually until the manufacturers have re-registered it.
