Samples treated with Thiram in Naktuinbouws’ collection

News publication date: 29 January 2020

Soon samples treated with Thiram may not be sown anymore. Since April 2019 we do no longer accept Thiram treated seeds at Naktuinbouw Variety Testing department. In our trials we often use samples from our collection for comparison, also older samples. If such sample for comparison is Thiram treated, we are not allowed to sow it.

We ask for your assistance

We don’t know of all our samples in collection whether it is Thiram treated or not. As far as known we have asked the inspector of Naktuinbouw to collect a new non-treated sample. We ask for your assistance, if it appears that we need more non-treated samples at a later stage.
