Two more Pesticides Permitted by Tea Board

  • The new Plant Protection Code (PPC) launched by The Tea Board of India (TBI) adds two more chemicals to the existing list of 35 formulations that the industry is allowed to use.
  • The addition has been made following persistent attacks by certain types of pests which have increased due to climate-change.
  • The Central Insecticide Board has cleared the new chemicals, according to the Tea Board. PPC deals with the safe usage of crop protection products.
