Storage of plant protection products

To ensure safety, it is also recommended to optimize the management of product stocks:

  • Respect the "first in/first out" principle.
  • Keep products in their original packaging.
  • Keep water-soluble packaging away from all sources of moisture.
  • Store powders and granules above liquids.

Reading labels is an important source of information. The time spent reading labels is never wasted on operator safety and the environment. There are different types of information on labels:

  • Approved uses and doses: any use that does not correspond to the indicated use is prohibited.
  • The "safety" part with pictograms reminding the classification of the product. The risk phrases (R phrases) warn the applicator about the toxicity and dangers associated with the use. The precautionary statements (S-phrases) provide information on the precautions to be taken.
  • Agronomic information: this is essentially advice on application (positioning, application conditions, etc.)

  • Do not eat, drink or smoke during use
  • Keep away from food, drinks, including those of animals
  • In case of contact with eyes, wash immediately with water and seek medical advice
