An important survey is being undertaken by government to gain information on the use of pesticides, in which the Amenity Forum is encouraging turf professionals to participate.

The survey, delivered by Fera Science Ltd, is looking to gain information on the amount of pesticides used, the different types and categories and also a little additional information on numbers of sprayers, qualified staff etc.

The Amenity Forum say it is vitally important that the sector fully supports this work as it will form the basis for future policy, strategic decisions and it will provide valuable information for use across the sector. A similar survey was conducted in 2016. 

The Forum say they have been consulted to help ensure the survey is as straightforward as possible and easy to complete. John Moverley, independent chairman of the Amenity Forum said, "We cannot over emphasise the importance of high participation so that good and sound data can result."
