Crop Definitions List

HSE's Crop Definitions List:

  • Provides consistent terminology for the uses given in Plant Protection Product (PPP) and adjuvant authorisations and databases
  • Describes the specific crops and situations covered by each term
  • Where relevant, provides links with the commodity codes as listed in Part 1 of the GB statutory MRL register and Commission Regulation (EC) 2018/62 (which replaces Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 [The Maximum Residue Levels (MRL) Regulation]

An explanation of how the list is structured and how it should be used is given in the introductory text of the List itself.

The Crop Definitions List replaced the previous 'Crop Hierarchy'.  If required, previous versions can be found via the Government web national archive.
