Amenity - Best Practice: Using Pesticides in the Community, has been launched by the Crop Protection Association (CPA).
The guide is aimed at local authorities, utility companies, amenity managers and groundsmen. The 12-page booklet highlights the key role pesticides play in maintaining the quality of parks, golf-courses and sports pitches and ensuring the safety of railways and roads. It also provides information on pesticide safety and legislation and guidance on best practice.
CPA amenity group chairman Mark Phillips said: "Pesticides have a very important role throughout the transport, leisure and amenity sectors but the public has to have confidence that they are being applied in a responsible manner. Our new guide gives all the information and guidance pesticide users need in providing that assurance."
