A plant protection product shall be included in the Latvian Register of Plant Protection Products only if it is safe for human and animal health, the environment and is sufficiently effective in restricting organisms harmful to plants or plant products.
Studies and experiments, or efficacy tests, are carried out in crops in order to establish its effectiveness in controlling harmful organisms before registration of a plant protection product. These tests must be carried out under conditions consistent with the climatic and agronomic crop cultivation conditions in practice.
In order to be able to carry out tests on unregistered plant protection products, authorisation must be granted.
