In the Netherlands the need for a biological and organic vaccine to protect elm trees from Dutch Elm Disease is very high because of the ban on use of chemicals on street and park trees.

The vaccine is being used to treat over 25,000 trees in the Netherlands annually. The table below summarises the results of elms treated in the Netherlands between 1992-2015.


In the Netherlands DutchTrig® has been registered with the Dutch Board for Authorisation of Pesticides (CTGB) since 1992. Currently authorized under Regulation (EC) no. 1107/2009 with permit number N14952.

CTGB database for the most recent information on the registration can be accessed at

Because Verticillium isolate WCS850 (the active ingredient in DutchTrig®) is native to the Netherlands, no further plant pest permits for transport or use are required.

Application of DutchTrig® in the Netherlands is undertaken by BTL Bomendienst. More information can be found at the contact page or at (only available in Dutch).
