Stewardship is the responsible management of a crop protection product from its invention to its end use and beyond to support sustainable agriculture.
Stewardship Limited can help to ensure that the use of crop protection products causes minimal potential risk to humans and the environment, through training and advice.
- Raises awareness of the safe handling, storage and use of crop protection products within industry and farming communities
- Assists government and non-government agencies with resources, expertise and training
The aim of stewardship is to maximise benefits and minimise risks from using crop protection products whilst maintaining maximum product choice.
Crop Protection products are an essential tool in the provision of sufficient quantities of quality produce required to sustain a growing population. It has been estimated that in the next 30 years, the world will need to produce the same quantity of food that has been consumed in the last 10,000 years!
