No. 19 - Responsible Use of Crop Protection Agents (CPAs) in Tobacco Leaf Production

April 2017 Ref. ACAC-132-CTG-19

These guidelines are aimed at all stakeholders in the tobacco leaf production and supply sectors, including decision-makers, managers, agronomists, pest control, extension and training specialists, field supervisors and growers. They aim to provide a set of practical guidelines on how to manage and use crop protection agents (CPAs) effectively and safely, while simultaneously minimising their environmental footprint, the risks they pose to those associated with their use, and their residues. The guidelines are based on current international and national codes of practice, protocols and regulations, relevant CORESTA Guides and the tobacco industry’s social responsibility and sustainability programmes.
