About Horticulture Crop Protection
Horticulture Crop Protection Ltd (HCP) has been set up by the UK Horticultural industry to take over the processing of pesticide minor use applications (EAMUs) and emergency authorisation applications, following the wind-down of AHDB Horticulture. HCP operates on a ‘not for profit’ basis and is owned and funded by the Crop Associations. A small team at HCP team manages the EAMU and Emergency Authorisation approval process. This also includes carrying out residue and efficacy trials to support applications where necessary.
