Pesticide Usage Surveys
Data on the usage of pesticides in the UK has been collated from across Great Britain for the last 40 years and continues to be collated today. The Land Use Sustainability team plays a leading role in this, applying their skills, knowledge and experience to gather the data, produce guidelines and create powerful, accessible databases for industry. We also participate in research projects through conducting surveys where compatible with pesticide usage surveys, and by bespoke interrogation and analysis of the extensive databases we hold.
Pesticide usage surveys are funded by the Chemicals Regulation Directorate of the Health and Safety Executive.
