UK Pesticides Campaign

The UK Pesticides Campaign is a campaign started in 2001 by Georgina Downs

It has the aim of changing the United Kingdom Government's policy on the use of pesticides in agriculture within the UK.

Current regulations for the use of pesticides in the UK require that workers wear appropriate protective clothing and follow prescribed procedures for the handling of toxic agricultural substances. These regulations do not extend to exposure of such substances by members of the public. Farmers are not required by law to reveal the nature of the chemicals they use, nor are there any rules limiting how close to adjacent premises they may spray a chemical.

The UK Pesticides Campaign challenges current policy by focusing on pesticide exposure for people in agricultural areas.
