Use of Plant Protection Products

With the introduction of the Sustainable Use of Pesticides Directive, rules to reduce the risks to human health and the environment associated with plant protection product use have been set.  From the 26th November 2015, only a registered professional user can apply plant protection products authorised for professional use.  In order to register with DAFM, users must have the appropriate training.

At all times the end user must follow the instructions for use on the product label and must wear appropriate protective clothing (e.g. gloves), if recommended on the product label.
