Both the 25 Year Environment Plan and the National Action Plan emphasise the importance of Integrated Pest Management. This means not only that pesticides are used well, but that pesticide use is minimised and the uptake of alternatives is strongly encouraged.</p><p> </p> more like this

This category includes plants such as poppies, lavender, chamomile, and plants or parts of plants used for pharmaceutical purposes, perfume manufacture or other aromatic products. As a consequence we are not able to distinguish the area of opium poppies from the other crops that fall into that category.</p><p> </p> more like this
