EPPO guidelines for the efficacy evaluation of plant protection products now republished as EPPO standards

The EPPO guidelines for the efficacy evaluation of plant protection products describe the conduct of trials carried out to assess the efficacy of plant protection products against specific pests. Over many years, approximately 200 guidelines have been prepared. They are referred to in the EU Directive 91/414 concerning the placing of plant protection products on the market. All are now being completely revised and presented in the form of EPPO standards, and will be published as a set of four paperback volumes, which will be issued and distributed separately and at intervals over the coming year. The set will be available separately in English and in French. The volumes will be as follows:

Volume 1: General guidelines, nematicides, molluscicides, side-effects, rodenticides, general index
Volume 2: Fungicides, bactericides
Volume 3: Insecticides, acaricides
Volume 4: Herbicides, plant growth regulators

Volume 2 on fungicides and bactericides is now available (in English or French), and the other three volumes will appear very soon. The set of revised EPPO guidelines is now on sale, either as a whole or as separate volumes. A special discount price of 1500 FRF is offered for the complete set of 4 volumes. Otherwise, separate volumes can be ordered at the price of 500 FRF each. These prices apply separately to the English and French versions.
