EPPO Standards for the Efficacy Evaluation of Plant Protection Products:

The EPPO standards 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. They were republished in 2004 in five volumes, which covered all standards approved until 2003-09. As the preparation of EPPO Standards is a continuing activity, new and revised standards have been approved since this publication. Updates are published every year. An update containing new and revised standards approved in 2005-09 is now available (in English only). This update can be ordered from the EPPO Secretariat at the price of 45 EUR, and includes the following standards:
