The event, to be held on 16 October at Leicester City Football Club, will feature presentations from across related displiplines.
Speakers include Grant Stark from HSE’s Chemicals Regulation Directorate, manager of the research department at STRI Ruth Mann, head of policy implementation in CRD’s Regulatory Policy Group Adrian Dixon, Headland Amenity operations director Mark Dath and Senior advisor in Turfgrass, University of Copenhagen, Forest & Landscape Anne Mette Dahl Jensesn.
Amenity Forum chairman Professor John Moverley said: "There are many challenges facing the amenity sector in terms of its approach to weed, pest and disease control.
"The impact of legislation linked to such things as the Sustainable Use and Water Framework Directives is significant as are the cost pressures and other technical challenges.
"The emphasis is very firmly on adopting integrated approaches and making the most effective use of pesticides."
Delegates at last year’s conference were concerned about being able to continue to use glyphosate and discussed issues such as inappropriate use, drift and consumer use.
Moverley added: "Amenity is in the spotlight. It is important that the sector itself shows it can rise to the challenge and get fully behind best practice and driving up standards.
"It is important that the sector does this itself and it is not imposed by others which could have unwanted implications, hence the theme of staying in control."
