Eden Research Plc announced it has received notice that three active ingredients which form part of multiple plant protection products have been granted approval for inclusion in Annex IV to Regulation (EC) Number 396/2005, subject to the provision of confirmatory data.

Geraniol and thymol are now exempt from the maximum residue levels (“MRLs”) set for many pesticides.  This translates into a benefit for growers when considering treatment programmes, as Eden’s products can now be used without regard to concern for residues, thus allowing growers to protect their crops right up to the point of harvest.  Eugenol has previously been granted provisional approval for inclusion in Annex IV.
