Chlorpropham (CIPC) is an agrochemical widely used as a sprout suppressant on stored potatoes. In the processing sector its use is almost universal as potatoes stored for this market need to be maintained at relatively warm temperatures (6-13oC) to sustain frying quality.
Like all agrochemicals, use of CIPC is regulated and, since a review by the Advisory Committee on Pesticides in 2007, now subject to a stewardship process operated by the Potato Industry CIPC Stewardship Group. Nick Green of Stored Crop Conservation Ltd is a founder member of the Stewardship Group.
As a member of the Stewardship Group, Nick was actively involved in helping produce the ‘Industry Code of Best Practice for Application of Chlorpropham Potato Sprout Supplement’ published by the Potato Council.
