    I think in the article I read alto elite has till next June till it's withdrawn from sale I could be wrong but that's how I read it in the yellow comic. you are quite right about Cherokee tho being withdrawn at the end of December.

    My agronomist mate says he can't sell Alto Elite after 31st Dec, both Alto elite and Cherokee can be used til June if on farm before 31st Dec

    The distributors won't be bringing any more into the country, so will run stocks down long before the expiry dates so no one in the trade is left holding unsold stock.

    I'll bet there's a sh*t load available in January though ;)

    Prothio won't be far away either - especially now the patent is close to ending.

    Does make you wonder what we'll be left with....Jonathan Blake will have some work to do for his presentations! I can see his dose response curves changing (even more!) rapidly over the next 5 years.

    Perhaps the master plan is to reduce the exportable surplus by lowering yields, and save any customs issues and queues post brexit.:rolleyes::facepalm:

    UK Ag. will be uneconomic as it is post Brexit, let alone with all this too.

    Least the French are allowed to spray at night!

    We're allowed to spray at night if we choose to. The French have to from March onwards.

    I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure epoxiconaole and chlorothalonil haven't been voted on yet by SCoPAFF. My gut feel is that epoxiconazole will go, I'm keeping everything crossed that we keep CTL.


    I'm more confident that prothioconazole will be re-approved. I think this will be the only triazole which remains, but fortunately Revysol from BASF will arrive just in time to make the number of triazoles a whopping two.
