Quickdown - Germany

A new derogation for Quickdown in Germany for sucker control in all grape varieties has been granted in April.
DLR Rheinland-Pfalz was responsible for applying for the submission. The reason for this application was, that due to COVID-19, winegrowers were worried, that foreign seasonal workers wouldn`t be able to do come to Germany to carry out this important work on the crop. 
This special derogation has been approved for 8.000 ha.
