New authorisation for 'Serenade ASO' on outdoor cabbage


New Extension of Authorisation for the use of 'Serenade ASO' as a fungicide for the control of Botrytis cinerea as a post-harvest drench treatment in outdoor cabbage, before storage.

This EAMU was sought by the AHDB EAMU Programme as a result of good results in our research programme. Serenade ASO was included in research project FV430 Reducing wastage in stored winter cabbage and swede with very good results. The research report can be downloaded

Serenade ASO also performed very well in the SCEPTREplus trial looking at control of botrytis in stored cabbage in 2017/18. The trial report will be made available on the SCEPTREplus webpage shortly.

Application to cabbages must only take place where any product runoff from the crates/ storage bins and spray equipment washings can be contained (e.g. on a biobed or bunded residue collection area). All dilute pesticide waste must be disposed of safely and legally to protect humans, wildlife and the environment, especially groundwater and surface water.
Neither the efficacy nor the phytotoxicity of the products for which these Emergency Authorisations or EAMU have been granted have been assessed and, as such, the user bears in mind the risk in respect of failures concerning its efficacy or phytotoxicity.
Further Grower Information 

IMPORTANT: When applying this product under the terms of this Extension of Authorisation, comply with any resistance guidance or restrictions stated on the product label.

Total reliance on one pesticide will hasten the development of resistance. Pesticides of different chemical types or alternative control measures should be included in the planned programme. Alternating with different modes of action is a recognised anti-resistance strategy.

Extension of Authorisation for Minor Uses (EAMUs) are granted only in relation to a particular product for specific uses. It is an offence to use an approved product in a manner that does not comply with the specific conditions of approval that is laid down in the statutory Appendix 1 “Conditions of Extension of Authorisation” of the EAMU. To demonstrate compliance with such terms, a user must have read and understood the document before commencing spraying operations. Possession of a current EAMU document is generally taken as part of the “burden of proof” of this requirement. Only the original EAMU document, held by the Chemicals Regulation Directorate (“CRD”), constitutes a valid legal document.
No reliance should be placed on an EAMU by a user in relation to products which, although similar to an approved product, are not expressly covered by the EAMU.
