Helping the UK grow

Plant Protection Products (PPPs), also known as pesticides, are chemical or biological substances used to control unwanted pests that can harm our food, health or environment.

Crop Protection

Biotechnology encompasses a broad range of crop technologies - including conventional and advanced breeding techniques such as Gene Editing. These innovations are designed to promote and support the sustainable intensification of agriculture by tackling challenges such as pests, diseases and the impact of climate change.


When it comes to managing pests it's about taking an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach. Whilst synthetic plant protection products (PPPs) remain an important part of that approach, they are not the only tool available to farmers.


Digital and precision agriculture encompasses a range of innovations and techniques designed to make farming more accurate and controlled.
