The US EPA released on 24th November 2020 an updated version of the “Draft Guidance for Plant Regulators and Claims, Including Plant Bio-stimulants”. The draft is open for public comments for a period of 30 days from the date of publication. 

EPA now seeks input on those changes, including the wording of certain plant and non-plant regulator claim examples. 

This updated version is in response to stakeholder feedback received during the draft guidance’s initial comment period in 2019 

The updated draft version can be downloaded from:

This guidance document is likely to be finalized in January 2021.

This Plant Bio-stimulants Guidance is believed to then provide the much sought-after certainty and transparency for this growing area of the economy. 

The revised deadline for public comments is 24th December 2020, so better hurry...
