Additional information for Growers:
Total reliance on one pesticide will hasten the development of resistance. Pesticides of different chemical types or alternative control measures should be included in the planned programme. Alternating with different modes of action is a recognised anti-resistance strategy.                         IMPORTANT: When applying this product under the terms of this Extension of Use Notice, comply with any resistance guidance or restrictions stated on the product label.
This EAMU has been sent to you by the HDC, who distribute EAMUs (formerly known as SOLAs) on the basis of the crop information that you have previously provided. If you are receiving EAMUs for crops that you no longer grow, or not receiving EAMUs for those that you do grow, please contact the HDC by email on hdc@hdc.ahdb.org.uk quoting your levy number.
In order to comply with current legislation, you should download this EAMU onto your personal computer or retain a paper copy before using this EAMU.
NB. CRD have advised that there may be a short delay of up to four working days before new EAMUs are available on the CRD website, after they have first been issued to HDC.


Extension of Authorisation for Minor Uses (EAMUs) are granted only in relation to a particular product                                for specific uses. It is an offence to use an approved product in a manner that does not comply with                                the specific conditions of approval that is laid down in the statutory Appendix 1 “Conditions of Extension                                of Authorisation” of the EAMU. To demonstrate compliance with such terms, a user must have read and understood                                the document before commencing spraying operations. Possession of a current EAMU document is generally taken                                as part of the “burden of proof” of this requirement. Only the original EAMU document, held by the Chemicals                                Regulation Directorate (“CRD”), constitutes a valid legal document.

No reliance should be placed on a EAMU by a user in relation to products which, although similar to an                                approved product, are not expressly covered by the EAMU.
