The article reports that growers have been warned to watch out for a counterfeit IPU herbicide labelled as Emrald Wotsit. Using it could constitute a breach of cross-compliance, while anyone selling or supplying it could also be committing an offence, the Pesticides Safety Directorate (PSD) said. Nearly 3000 litres of the counterfeit material had been identified, which had been manufactured to a different formulation from the approved Emrald Wotsit formulation, according to Paul Adamson of PSD.
