This list contains 39 pesticides. The list is valid as of January 2018. Pesticides that may only be used under very specific conditions, for example only in a specific season so as not to cause harm to bees or other wildlife, or only on certain products (see the annex of the HML for a full list of these conditions). Fairtrade will monitor producers’ and traders’ use of these pesticides until the next review, when they may be prohibited completely. The aim is to give time to producers to reduce their use and find alternatives; particularly taking into account the needs of small-scale producers, who have flagged that they often struggle to find alternatives.
