Pesticides Forum

Welcome to the Pesticides Forum website.

The UK Pesticides Forum was set up in 1996 to bring together a range of organisations with an interest in how pesticides are used and the impact of their use. Since 2013 it also has a key role under the UK National Action Plan for the Sustainable Use of Pesticides (Plant Protection Products) in providing stakeholder interaction and producing an Annual Report on developments in the Plan.

The Forum represents stakeholders with differing views about pesticides and how the impacts of their use should be addressed. Member organisations include those who make, use or advise on pesticides as well as environmental, conservation and consumer interests. Many of the members are engaged in initiatives to promote best practice or are interested in improving integrated pesticide use or alternative approaches. The Forum provides a mechanism for exchanging ideas, encouraging joint initiatives to address particular issues and giving advice to Government on practical aspects of pesticide usage.

We hope that you find the information on these pages helpful in gaining a fuller picture of the Forum and its work. We are always keen to communicate with you and welcome your comments and questions. Please feel free to email the Secretariat at:
