MPS-MIND is the environmental indicator that makes it possible to measure the environmental impact of crop protection agents. These products are classified into the categories green, amber and red, with green products having the lowest impact on the environment and red the most. Substances that are on the MPS-List prohibited substances are not allowed within MPS-ABC.

MPS-MIND creates transparency as to the amount and harmfulness of the crop protection agents used. This leads to a more conscious use of these products. Effective use of crop protection agents is important in MPS-MIND: in some cases, using a red product once is more effective and environmentally sustainable than using a green product dozens of times.
