Amenity Forum events to outline future for weed pest and disease management

The Amenity Forum says there have been further losses of pesticide product during the year raising fears among operators of what might be next.

The Forum said: "The emphasis of all involved must be on demonstrating professionalism and best practice and ensuring an integrated approach is followed making best use of all the tools available and optimising the use of pesticides required. The sector needs to ensure that everyone in it keeps updated and is fully trained and, when spraying, knows everything needed to ensure the most effective and efficient application."

In 2017, the Amenity Forum will be holding a series of free updating events at locations across the UK. These events are half day in length and focus on short presentations covering the topics above delivered by specialists in these areas. Apart from events in each main region of England, there will also be ones in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.
