UK IPM initiative to cover 2 million ha

The UK farmers and crop protection industry’s Voluntary Initiative’s Integrated Pest Management Plan (IPMP) is set to cover over 2 million ha in its first year. The IPMP was developed by the UK National Farmers’ Union for the VI to help farmers demonstrate to UK and EU regulators and farm assurance schemes that they were adopting an integrated approach to weed, pest and disease control. VI was formed in 2001, when the UK government was considering a pesticide tax and the programme was developed as an alternative to minimise the environmental impacts from pesticides.
