Amenity Survey - Introduction

We would like your help in providing information about the usage of pesticides (excluding pest control such as rat, mouse, bedbug and cockroach control) used in amenity situations, including usage by contractors, local authorities, golf courses, turf growers, utility companies, invasive weed, rail and road companies during 2020.

We are looking to understand your organisation's pesticide usage during the period between January and December 2020.

The survey is fully supported by the Amenity Forum, BALI, BIGGA, Grounds Management Association, LANTRA, Property Care Association and the Turf Growers Association as a means of obtaining vital and much needed information.
Your participation can help inform the process by which the risks associated with the use of pesticides are assessed and demonstrate the professionalism of users in the sector.

The industry has made many significant changes over the past few years, particularly regarding training, awareness and sprayer testing – it is intended that this survey will capture these changes.

Information Needed to Complete the Survey
To be able to complete the survey fully you will need the number of operators, the number of each type of sprayer used by your organisation and the total quantities of each product used in 2020.

You and Your Data
All information supplied will be treated in complete confidence and individual participants will not be identified.
