9 For more information see: Objectives: Communications To promote effective ways of helping all those involved in selling, supplying, storing, using and disposing of pesticides and pesticide waste products to use technologies and techniques which: – limit the need to use these products (and the risks that can arise from using them) in a way which is consistent with sustainable production and the control of pests, weeds and diseases; and – share best practice between all farming systems, whether organic systems using pesticides or other control options To monitor, review and improve the quality and relevance of information available to all those involved in selling, supplying, storing, using and disposing of pesticides and pesticide waste products To prepare and publish an annual report of our activities and maintain a close working relationship with the Advisory Committee on Pesticidesannual reportAdvisory Committee on Pesticides

10 For more information see: Objectives: Impacts and KT Monitoring impacts To consider how to most effectively monitor all impacts arising from the use of pesticides (including using indicators), and communicate these findings to Ministers, our stakeholders and the public Knowledge transfer To monitor pesticide-related research and development and aim to inform funding organisations of any significant gaps in the programme To promote the most effective and practical ways for sharing best practice in technology and research and development, by encouraging discussions between researchers and research funders, and between all those involved in selling, supplying, storing, using and disposing of pesticides

61 For more information see: Summary - usage Use of pesticides not adversely impacting UK health or environment – statutory and voluntary controls effective, but – scope to reduce risks further (e.g. water pollution) Pesticide usage affected by season, product availability, resistance, commodity prices – wet weather conditions increased usage in 2012 – application technology continues to improve precision of application Training of pesticide users increasing – NRoSO, BASIS, Amenity Assured – improvements in Amenity and for garden centre staff

62 For more information see: Summary – focus for improvement Further reduce water bodies at risk from pesticides with added focus on grassland users Key bird species continue to decline More recycling of packaging Reduce misuse and/or abuse Improve users understanding of risk and risk mitigation in both the amenity and the home and garden sectors

63 For more information see: Summary – future plans Protecting water: - River Basin Management Plans (2 nd round in 2015); WFD Improving practice in amateur and amenity sectors: - new guidance anticipated Promotion of integrated pest management (IPM): - development of mechanisms and measures - promotion of IPM Plans Training and certification: - Grandfather rights end November 2015 Application equipment testing: - compulsory from November 2016 Monitoring and assessing - impacts of other events with implications for pesticides use and cropping

64 For more information see: Priorities for 2013/14 Protecting water – Metaldehyde, oilseed rape herbicides Improving standards in specific sectors – Amenity; home and garden; grassland/forage Promotion of IPM and IPM Plans Pesticides Forum will work with member organisations and other stakeholders to help further reduce the risk to human health and the environment
