Only plant protection products registered in the Register of Plant Protection Products are authorised in Latvia.
When a plant protection product is registered, conditions of use are established, i.e. crop, harmful organisms, dose and time of use, seasonal number of trimmings and waiting time until harvest. The conditions of use are indicated in the labelling of the plant protection product, which is approved by registration of the plant protection product.
