Under EU pesticide regulation, it was possible to approve and thus legalize the traditional practices of common natural plant protection products from mineral, vegetal and animal origin used as “biopesticides”. The use of these compounds was made possible by field trials together with the collection and display of the gray literature references. The usages of these low concern natural plant protection products are therefore established and are available not only legally to all European farmers, but directly transferable to any agricultural entity or farmer able to dispose of these handy compounds.
