    Asulam Update

    The completed approval for the Emergency Authorisation, in response to the application that was submitted in July last year, has been issued and can be viewed on the Asulam page of the website. It will be published on the HSE website on 18th May.

    The associated product label is also available from the Asulam page, and the details should be noted by anyone seeking to apply Asulam to control bracken this year.

    The additional application for an Emergency Authorisation, which was submitted in early April, is being processed by the Chemicals Regulation Division of HSE. The application provides additional information to support the case for re-instatement of ground-based application of Asulam, and for the width of the buffer zone to protect surface water bodies to remain at 50m.

    It is unlikely that the application will be submitted for scrutiny of the Expert Committee on Pesticides before the beginning of June. Therefore, if any amendments are agreed, details will not be known until the middle of next month, at the earliest. As the EA approval allows application of Asulam from 1st July, the timing is tight, but if some changes to the restrictions in the current approval are agreed, it is hoped that they can be made full use of to help with the control of bracken.

    A further update will be issued, as soon as there is any news.

    Asulam for Bracken Control - Questionnaire

    I would like to thank the 155 people who have responded to the questionnaire.

    Provisional agreement has been reached to hold a meeting with the key players that control or have an interest in the use of Asulam before mid-February. During this meeting, there will be discussion about the proposed regime for the use of Asulam this year and possible alternative approaches. I will be using the level of support that your responses have provided to add weight to the argument that opportunities for change must be investigated.

    It may not be possible to get everything that the bracken control industry might want, but an airing of the issues may result in some changes.

    Further responses to the briefing and questionnaire will be very welcome, so please could you continue to spread the word.

    I will keep you up to date with further developments.
