The approval runs from June 1st and comes in response to requests from the provincial governments of Catalonia, Murcia and Extremadura, following pleas from growers and exporters. They had complained of the absence of any approved products for use on stored stone fruit. The complaints followed reports of rotting fruit destined for Africa, Asia and the Americas. Existing approvals of the use of fludioxonil on stone fruit do not cover post-harvest treatments.
