Pesticide Products in Croatia

A listing of selected pesticides which are, or have been in common use in Croatia, with the official warnings of their side-effects and the known side-effects of their active constituents.

Note: For a more comprehensive listing of active pesticide ingredients and related products, please see our article Pesticides and their Adverse Effects.

Chemical pesticides are by definition dangerous poisons, but very few people who sell, recommend or use them are aware of the potential harm each product can cause. The results of intensive chemical pesticide use have become all too apparent in terms of human and environmental health.

Official warnings
There are in the region of one hundred official 'Hazard Statements' warning of pesticide products' potential adverse effects and innumerable 'Precautionary Statements'. These are required for the labelling of potentially harmful registered pesticide products. Dangers are listed in Data Safety Sheets and on the labels of individual products. Dangers are designated in categories, with a code given for each.
 
The codes
Hazard statement codes consist of the letter H followed by the number 2 for physical hazards, 3 for human health hazards and 4 for environmental hazards. Two further numbers refer to the dangers more specifically. In some cases the letter H is preceded by EU. Precautionary statement codes are designated by the letter P, followed by 1 for general advice; 2 for preventive measures; 3 for responses in the case of accidents; 4 regulating storage; and 5 concerning safe disposal of unused residues and containers.
 
New additions to the warnings
In April 2023 new hazard clauses were added to the existing lists, with the codes and hazard statements as follows: EUH380, May cause endocrine disruption in humans; EUH381, suspected of causing endocrine disruption in humans; EUH430, May cause endocrine disruption in the environment; EUH431, suspected of causing endocrine disruption in the environment; EUH440 Accumulates in the environment and living organisms including in humans; EUH441, Strongly accumulates in the environment and living organisms including in humans; EUH450, Can cause long-lasting and diffuse contamination of water resources; EUH451, Can cause very long-lasting and diffuse contamination of water resources.
 
Product warnings: flaws
Oddly, dangers to bees and non-target organisms are not included within the main hazard warnings, but in a sub-category headed SPe. The code SPe8, way down the list, specifies danger to bees and other pollinators, advising that the product should not be used when plants, including weeds, are in flower. Even more strangely, the warning is not present in the labels of every pesticide which consists of active ingredients which are known to be dangerous to bees. In particular, insecticides, by definition, are potentially dangerous for all pollinators, and are commonly used during the spring and summer when most plants are in flower. There is no pictogram for bees and other beneficial insects. Is it surprising that bee populations are in decline everywhere where chemical pesticdes are used?

 
 
In some cases, the product warnings do not reflect the risks associated with the active ingredients in the substance. Product warning labels are not always clear, despite the use of pictograms. In Safety Data Sheets, the complete list of hazards usually appears only in Article 16 right at the end of the document, instead of at the beginning, where it would stand a greater chance of being read.

Warnings ineffective?
The warnings are obviously serious, yet who takes them seriously? Who understands them, or even looks at them?
Manufacturers and sellers of chemical pesticides relentlessly highlight the supposed benefits of using them alongside the supposed risks of harm, damage and/or loss if people don't use them. Even when end-users are aware of the dangers, a substantial number believe that the risks are exaggerated or that they don't matter. Official precautions are ignored. Bans have virtually no effect: many farmers resolutely stick to the products they are used to, even if it means procuring and using them illegally.
 
Warnings not highlighted
Chemical pesticide use is promoted through relentless propaganda by agrochemical companies, advertisements in all the media, recommendations by agronomists, even decrees by government and local authority agencies. The risks of any product are not highlighted at any stage, from the placing of a pesticide product on the market to the point of sale or end-use.
 
THE WARNINGS SHOULD COME FIRST!
The warnings are too serious to ignore, they should be up-front on every pesticide product label and should be stated first when any product is recommended by an authority or offered for sale to a buyer, whether a wholesaler, retailer or end-user.

OUR LIST OF COMMONLY USED PESTICIDES IN CROATIA Pesticides banned by the Croatian Phytosanitary Institute (FIS) and/or the Croatian Ministry of Health (MIZ) are marked in red. Where a product is approved as a 'plant protector' by FIS but not as a biocide by MIZ and vice versa, a red asterisk * denotes banned by FIS, and a  black asterisk * banned by MIZ. Our list is in alphabetical order by categories: Insecticides, Herbicides, Fungicides, Limacides, Raticides. The numbers given before products are those from the relevant list of the Ministry of Agriculture Phytosanitary Institute or the Ministry of Health.

Note: In this English listing we have included adverse effects of active ingredients for each product. We have not always included details of the product warnings, as most of the Safety Data Sheets are in Croatian. You can find those details, with the hazard and warning numbers and the pictograms in the Croatian version 'Pesticidni proizvodi u Hrvatskoj'.

HERBICIDES (Authorized as 'plant protection products' by the EU, not approved as biocides by the ECHA)
 
ABOUT GLYPHOSATE-BASED HERBICIDES: There are at least some 750 glyphosate-based herbicides available in the world markets. Eleven of them, including the widely used Roundup (Cidokor in Croatian), were banned in the EU in 2016. Apart from these, Glyphosate is approved in the EU, 16/12/2017 - 15/12/2033.
Glyphosate, suspected possible adverse effects -in humans: carcinogenic; neurotoxic; genotoxic; contributes to antibiotic resistance; influences pregnancy, fertility, and birth defects; endocrine disruptor; damages DNA, gut bacteria, organs including liver, kidneys and spleen; contributes to Parkinson's Disease and autism. Possible environmental ill-effects: damage to water, fish, aquatic organisms, soil, soil organisms, bees, butterflies, gastropods, trees, plants.
For more information about the scientific studies concerning glyphosate, see our article 'Glyphosate herbicides, scientific evidence'
As at February 2024, there were 28 glyphosate-based herbicides on the Phytosanitary Institute (FIS) list, two of which were no longer authorized. This is a selection, for a fuller overview see our article Pesticides and their Adverse Effects.

  • Studies find red, blue and green plastic decomposes into microplastic particles faster than plainer colours

    Retailers are being urged to stop making everyday products such as drinks bottles, outdoor furniture and toys out of brightly coloured plastic after researchers found it degrades into microplastics faster than plainer colours.

    Red, blue and green plastic became “very brittle and fragmented”, while black, white and silver samples were “largely unaffected” over a three-year period, according to the findings of the University of Leicester-led project.

  • Recommendations include heat forecasts and outdoor-worker safeguards to prevent thousands of deaths and injuries

    Millions of Americans face the threat of dangerous heatwaves in the coming weeks with another summer of record-breaking temperatures forecast to hit the US.

    Most of New Mexico and Utah – alongside parts of Arizona, Texas and Colorado – have the highest chance (60% to 70%) of seeing hotter-than-average summer temperatures, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (Noaa). In addition, the entire north-east – from Maine down to Pennsylvania and New Jersey – as well as a large stretch from Louisiana to Arizona, Washington and Idaho, have a 40% to 50% chance of experiencing above-average temperatures from June through August.

  • 30 May 1924: We watched a turnstone throwing over the dead weed and pouncing on as many light-surprised refugees as it could catch

    Dead seaweed has uses. The Pelvetia of the marsh, dry or sodden, seems to help on the growth of other plants; through its decomposing masses the fleshy leaves of sea purslane (Obione) and aster push to the salt-laden air. Where it lies, tide-drifted, with other heterogeneous litter, the small crustaceans of the shore find that it gives shelter; beneath the weed are sand-hoppers and small crabs enjoying damp shade until the next tide brings the longed-for water.

    Yet it is not always a safe refuge, for there are still some turnstones that have not left our shores for northern homes, and they find dead weed easier to throw over than heavy beach pebbles. We watched these beautiful little “tortoiseshell plovers” systematically working the tide-line. When one reached a likely looking patch of weed the head was lowered so that the short, slightly uptilted bill could be pushed well under; one quick upward stroke and over went the shelter, and the bird pounced on as many of the light-surprised refugees as it could catch before they hopped away or burrowed in the sand. When all the best weed had been turned the little flock, with trilling notes and flickering wings, hurried off to find a fresh spot for investigation.

  • Burythorpe, North Yorkshire: Once the site of a Norman castle anda bronze age enclosure, I can be sure that I’m not the first to enjoy the spectacular May sunsets here

    Trying to capture as much of May’s glory as possible, I take an evening walk in a place that I used to visit with my son when he was a baby in a sling. When he learned to toddle, it was here that he discovered he could walk backwards, delighting in the novelty,giggling over his shoulder as he inched towards me.

    Today, I want to visit the Nab, an off-piste hillock topped with a motte and bailey during Norman efforts to subdue the north. It’s always beckoned, but I’ve never been to the top. This evening, cloaked in hawthorn blossom and with clear blue sky above, it’s irresistible. A woman I meet walking a pale, sweet‑faced labrador tells me that the fortifications were burned down by a family from Scarborough, in revenge for the seduction of their daughter. “There’s a very old path from here to there. You can still see signs of it in places.” She’s an artist; I sense a kindred spirit, and we chat about old times and thin places.

  • Exclusive: after cryptosporidium outbreak in Devon, residents in south-east London report stomach cramps and diarrhoea

    Thames Water has sent samples of water for lab testing after dozens of people reported becoming unwell with stomach cramps, vomiting and diarrhoea in south-east London.

    Earlier this month, unsafe drinking water led to more than 100 cases of a waterborne disease in Devon, with people asked to boil their water because of contamination fears.

  • Gardens could be part of the solution to the climate and biodiversity crisis. But what are we doing? Disappearing them beneath plastic and paving

    In my 20s I lived in Manchester, on the sixth floor of a block of council flats just off the A57, or Mancunian (Mancy) Way. A short walk from Manchester Piccadilly station and the city centre, it was grey, noisy and built up. I loved every piece of it – my first stab at adulthood, at living on my own. I painted my bedroom silver and slept on a mattress on the floor, and I grew sweetcorn, tomatoes and courgettes in pots on the balcony. (I was 24 – of course I grew sweetcorn on the balcony.)

    I worked and played in the bars and clubs of Manchester’s gay village, and I would walk home in the early hours, keys poking through my clenched fist to protect me from would-be attackers, and I would see hedgehogs.

    Among food, travel, decor and single-use items, parties can create an enormous amount of waste and weddings are among the most egregious offenders.

    For Cindy Villaseñor, 33, that reality just didn’t sit right with her eco-conscious mindset. So when it came time to plan her own wedding, she and her partner agreed to do things differently.

  • As demand for sustainable housing grows, architects go back to basics to future-proof homes for a changing climate

    “Energy efficient”, “carbon neutral” and “net zero” are buzzwords we hear more and more as we face the impact of climate change. But do we think about them enough in building?

    Globally, a move towards sustainable housing is growing. In Europe, efforts to move to greener homes hope to combat rising energy costs and be better for the planet. But 40% of global carbon dioxide emissions still come from the real estate sector.
