24 March 2022
A reminder that metaldehyde slug pellets must be disposed of through a licensed waste contractor.
Farmers and growers are reminded that the last date for storage and use of metaldehyde slug pellets is 31 March 2022. Ahead of the end of March growers are advised to check their chemical stores for metaldehyde products.
If pellets are in stock and there is no agronomic justification for use ahead of 31 March, metaldehyde slug pellets must be disposed of through a licensed waste contractor.
