Responsible use of pesticides

AHDB supports the work of the Voluntary Initiative. Through its schemes, tools and messages, this industry-led programme promotes the responsible use of pesticides.

Reduce your carbon footprint

The UK Government Climate Change Act 2008 sets out clear targets for reducing UK greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Agriculture will need to play its part.

AHDB Cereals & Oilseeds has developed an easy-to-use software tool and guide, which offers a straightforward way to calculate the carbon footprint of a particular crop. We have also produced a greenhouse gas calculator for biofuels.
