Summary

Diammonimum phosphate, Pheromones and Pyrethroids (only deltamethrin or lambda-cyhalothrin) are not approved for use in traps or dispensers for plant protection purposes in organic plant production in Denmark because Diammonium phosphate and pheromones for use in traps and dispensers have not been approved by the Danish Environmental Protection Agency under the Danish Ministry for Environment, and Batrocera oleae and Ceratitis capitata wied, which are the only insects Pyrethroids may be used against in organic farming, are not found in Denmark

Difference

The substances to be used in traps and/or dispensers, Diammonimum phosphate, Pheromones and Pyrethroids (only deltamethrin or lambda-cyhalothrin) are not approved according to the DK Governmental Guidelines on Organic Agricultural Production 2006, Annex 2: "Active substances which under certain circumstances may be used as plant protection agents on organic or in-conversion areas in Denmark". According to the EU Regulation 2092/91, Annex II B, Section III, Diammonium phosphate and Pheromones are allowed without restrictions, while Pyrethroids are allowed only against Batrocera oleae and Ceratitis capitata.

Justification

Diammonimum phosphate and Pheromones for use in traps and dispensers have not been approved by the Danish Environmental Protection Agency under the Danish Ministry for Environment, which is the public authority responsible for evaluation and approval of all pesticides to be used in Denmark, and Batrocera oleae and Ceratitis capitata wied are insects, which are not found in Denmark
