Industry Code Of Best Practice For Application Of CIPC
Chlorpropham (or CIPC) is isopropyl-N-(3-chlorophenyl) carbamate. It is an agrochemical which is widely used as a sprout suppressant on stored potatoes. In particular, for potato storage in the processing sector, its use is almost universal, as it is necessary to store potatoes for processing at relatively warm temperatures (6-13°C) in order to maintain frying quality.
