Landscape Advice Note: Use of Pesticides

Front cover for Landscape Advice Note: Use of Pesticides

By Alan Cathersides

Under the Food and Environment Protection Act 1985, pesticides are defined as ‘chemical substances and certain micro-organisms prepared or used to destroy pests’. The term therefore encompasses a number of products including (amongst others) herbicides, fungicides, insecticides and masonry biocides.

This Landscape Advice Note looks at the principles of pesticide use and the regulations which apply to their use in England.
