The protection of water is a key priority for the crop protection industry, through the Voluntary Initiative and the H2OK? project we provide advice and guidance to farmers on ways to keep pesticides out of water.
Our member companies are also looking for innovative solutions to help farmers and advisers prevent pesticides entering water supplies.
For example, Adama have developed an app as part of their WaterAware initiative. The app helps farmers identify the potential risk from applying a crop protection product on a particular day, given their on farm conditions, in order to minimise the risk of pesticides entering surface water supplies.
