Pesticides can be the key to a sustainable business in agriculture, but their use can be controversial.
The risk of bioaccumulation, the destruction of biodiversity, issues of pollution and questions around waste handling and chemical runoff have given rise to increased scrutiny and a general feeling of skepticism about pesticides among both regulators and the wider public.
Pesticides can be a valuable tool in modern agriculture, but are sometimes the root cause of value destruction. Using the right combination of chemicals, at the right time, in the right way, in compliance with all the prevailing regulation is no easy task. Our industry specialists can help you make the correct choice of pesticide and select the optimal method of application, correct dose and time of application in order to maximise affectivity while minimising impact.
