Are you a pesticide user who is working to manage weeds, plant pests and diseases?

Published on

RSK ADAS and Vision One are working with Defra to better understand how people use and take up information on pesticides. For this project we are looking to hear from a wide range of stakeholders who are practising Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to varying levels.

We are inviting these stakeholders to participate in the research project through online focus groups to be held in February 2021.

Are you a pesticide user who is working to manage weeds, plant pests and diseases?

The online focus groups will be 90 minutes long and they will discuss how you manage your pesticide use and what you feel would make a successful communication strategy to promote IPM.

If you are representing yourself, you will receive a £60 incentive to participate.

We are looking for the below participants:

  • Arable farmers
  • Mixed or livestock farmers
  • Horticulture growers
  • Local Authorities
  • Sports and recreational users

We are also looking for agronomists or representatives from organisations.
