Plant Protection Products

A plant protection product (PPP) is a formulation which is designed to protect plants from damaging influences such as weeds, diseases or insects.  Plant protection products contain one or more active substances along with other co-formulants such as solvents, carriers, inert material, wetting agents or adjuvants fomulated to give optimum product efficacy.

Active substances are approved at EU level and PPPs are authorised by Member States.  It should be noted that PPPs may only be distributed and used in Ireland if they have been authorised by the Irish competent authority, the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM).
