EPPO Standards on efficacy evaluation of plant protection products: update of the web-based database

The EPPO standards for the efficacy evaluation of plant protection products (PP1) describe the conduct of trials carried out to assess the efficacy of plant protection products against specific pests. They are addressed to all institutions, official registration authorities, public institutes or private firms carrying out such trials. Until 2008, these Standards were published as paper brochures but in February 2009, following numerous demands, the EPPO Secretariat released a new database which contains the whole series of EPPO PP1 Standards (more than 260 standards covering a wide range of crops and pests). In this new database, all Standards can be easily retrieved as PDF files by using a simple search tool.

The database has been updated with new and revised standards adopted by EPPO Council in September 2010.

Specific standards
  • Chamaepsila rosae (PP1/14)
  • Aquatic weeds (PP1/115)
  • Weeds in cotton (PP1/137)
  • Weeds in flax/linseed and hemp (PP1/138)
  • Weeds in tobacco (PP1/140)
  • Potato desiccants (PP1/143)
  • Control of lodging and growth regulation in brassica oil crops (PP1/153)
  • Control of suckers in tobacco (PP1/155)
  • Accelerated ripening of oilseed crops and large-seed legumes (PP1/156)
  • Regulation of growth in Pisum (PP1/163)
  • Sprout suppressants in potato: at storage or in store application (PP1/164)
  • Reduction of lodging in sunflower (PP1/189)
  • Fungal diseases on cultivated mushroom of Agaricus spp. (PP1/270) (new)
  • Side-effects on honeybees (PP1/170)

General standards
  • Study of unintentional effects of plant protection products on fermentation processes and characteristics of wine (PP1/268) (new)
  • Comparable climates on global level (PP1/269) (new)

All general Standards (e.g. design, conduct, reporting and analysis of trials, phytotoxicity, effects on succeeding crops, analysis of resistance risk, minor uses) can be accessed free of charge. Access to specific Standards (e.g. aphids on potato, weeds in cereals) is provided for an annual fee. Subscriptions should be made directly online via the database.
