Driven by sustainability




MPS-ABC is a unique environmental standard in the worldwide horticulture sector. MPS-ABC is a dynamic certification scheme and we would like to inform you on a change made in the MPS-MIND system.

Within MPS-ABC we work with the MPS-MIND system to assess the colour of active ingredients of crop protection agents. Colours (red, orange and green) may differ per environmental zone. ‘Red’ active ingredients are being assessed as more harmful for the environment as ‘Green’ active ingredients.

MPS regularly assesses the colours of the active ingredients. Because of the assessment, the active ingredients have been changed of colour. You can find the new colour in the table below. These colour changes will take effect as of period 8 2017.

The table below shows the active ingredients which colour changes after the assessment.

Sometimes new information does not change the colour of the active ingredient.

Of the following active ingredient the colour remains the same:

  • benzovindiflupyr
  • cyprosulfamide
  • diammonium ethylenebis (dithiocarbamate)
  • flupyradifurone
  • geraniol
  • gs-omega/kappa-hxtx-hv1a
  • monosultap
  • propylene glycol
