Testing the Impact and Analysis of the Use of Plant Protection Products (PPPs)

PSM Kontrolle Wirkung Traktor Bach

As part of the approval process, the efficacy, recommended use and resistance potential of the PPPs are tested. The impact experts assess the agronomic benefit, suitability and compatibility for the applications. Thanks to hands-on research and advice from cantons and other institutions, all aspects of plant protection are studied, leading to a comprehensive assessment. There are gaps in our understanding of the effective use of PPPs for various crops and plant protection strategies. The PPP National Action Plan calls for a more-in-depth knowledge of PPP use, the optimisation of plant protection and economic acceptance, and a reduction of the ecological risks.
