The Greenhouse Gas Action Plan focuses on how farmers, across all sectors and farming systems, can become more efficient to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and make cost savings per unit of production. Agriculture can also make a big contribution to mitigating climate change by storing carbon in soils and vegetation and by generating renewable energy.  We are determined to show that farming is part of the solution.

The Voluntary Initiative produces advice on minimising the environmental impacts from pesticides.

Every Drop Counts explains why pesticides getting into water matters, how they get there and basic best practice to keep pesticides out of water

H2OK? Best Practice Advice contains a summary of best practice advice for keeping pesticides out of water. It also includes Water Protection Advice Sheets for those pesticides most commonly found in water.

All Tried & Tested Tools are available FREE of charge and can be found here

Other Tools and Advice can be found on the Resources page.
