Basis CPD points for guide users

Growers who are registered members of BASIS can gain continuing professional development (CPD) points by buying The UK Pesticide Guide or subscribing to online resource plantprotection.co.uk.

The guide is published by the British Crop Production Council and Commonwealth Agricultural Bureaux International.

Editor Martin Lainsbury said: "Keeping up to date with changes in the pesticide industry is vital. The guide features more than 1,300 products and, when purchased, will provide BASIS members with two CPD points. The online resource plantprotection.co.uk has been allocated three CPD points."

Nearly 4,000 people are registered as members of the BASIS Professional Register and earn CPD points each year. This helps to establish and assess standards in the pesticide industry relating to storage, transport and staff competence.
