This website was set up by the CropLife UK to provide the public with an introduction to crop protection.


There's a great deal of debate and misunderstanding about the use of pesticides in food production and in our environment more widely, and we hope this website will help explain why pesticides are used, what their benefits are and why they're safe for consumers and the environment.


Farmers will need to use every available technology - including pesticides - to help meet the challenge of feeding a global population set to reach 9.5 billion by 2050 while protecting the natural environment and conserving precious natural resources.


It's time to put a fresh perspective on the essential role pesticides play in safeguarding our food supply, protecting the environment and improving our quality of life.
