Basic Substances are a group of chemicals and natural extracts that can be used in plant protection in the EU. In 2014 a range of substances were approved as “basic” under Regulation 1107/2009 and these can be used without restriction in any EU member state for an indefinite period. Sounds pretty amazing, right? So why have these regulations and thus a whole arsenal of plant protection products been ignored or forgotten? This is the question I answer in the YouTube video below, with a focus on one particularly powerful basic substance ‘Chitosan Hydrochloride’.

Plater Group's Glossop site has had a long and varied history.
The buildings were originally constructed in 1902, by the Urban Electricity Supply Company, to provide power for the new Glossop Tramways. The first tram ran in August 1903 and the last on 24th December 1927.
The plot has been developed over the last 90 years, however some of the original rails can be seen around the site. The engine sheds pictured are still standing and now form part of Plater Production' spray drying manufacturing facility.
Over the years, Plater Group has promoted and sponsored many initiatives in support of local communities and charitable organisations, in Glossop and Staffordshire.
Local sporting clubs’ benefit from annual financial support, together with charities providing support to people living in neighbouring communities. The Plater Group team have taken part in several challenges raising funds for worthwhile charities.
