CHEMICALS APPROVED BY PCPB FOR MANAGEMENT OF POTATO PEST AND DISEASES

Unmanaged potato pests and diseases results into high losses both in the field and during storage. Use of chemicals is one of the recommended ways of managing pests and diseases. Pest Control Products Board (PCPB) is the institution that regulates the importation and exportation, manufacture, distribution and use of pest control products in Kenya. Farmers are advised to refer to the list of chemicals approved and registered by PCPB for management of potato pest and diseases. The list which NPCK is sharing with farmer members and other stakeholders will be updated on regular bases and as the need arises. This has been necessitated in order to protect farmers from purchasing fake and infective pesticides present in the market. Apart from the name of the chemical, the list also has details of active ingredient, postharvest intervals and name of manufacturer/ suppliers.
