Responsible Use & Container Management Project

The responsible and effective use of crop protection products continues to be an issue that is extremely important to the industry.  The Crop Protection Industry is committed to promoting practices that encourage the responsible, safe and judicious use of its products. This is undertaken within the context of promoting an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) strategy, and forms an important part of the industry’s life-cycle approach to product stewardship wherein it is the responsible and ethical way to manage crop protection products from their discovery and development, to their use and the final disposal of any waste. The overall aim of the stewardship approach is to maximize the benefits, and minimize any risk, from using crop protection products.

Enhancing the awareness of farmers on safe and judicious use of agrochemicals, right time of usage, dosage; safe disposal of containers; etc. is of prime importance and is part of product stewardship. 

What happens in the farms impacts the entire food chain and goes even further. For example, indiscriminate use of crop protection chemicals leads not only to unnecessary expenditure for the farmers, it may lead to crop losses, development of resistance in pest, presence of excessive residues in the final produce and ultimately impact their incomes. Farmers particularly, those that are engaged in exporting their produce, may face rejection of export consignments and that may cause huge losses. It even affects their reputation and reliability as suppliers if they are engaged in contract farming with export oriented companies.

Sharing the common goal of sustainability and farmers’ welfare, CropLife India has a long history of creating awareness and building capacity on sustainable practices among various stakeholders including farmers, agriculture input retailers, agricultural extension staff, Krishi Vikas Kendras (KVKs), Custom officials, key stakeholders and several NGOs. Our team has been actively involved in providing hands-on training to farmers on GAP (Good Agricultural Practices), IPM (Integrated Pest Management), Responsible Use of Crop Protection Products and ensuring quality crop protection products. 

Tailored Stewardship solutions are helping farmers grow more abundant supplies of healthy, affordable food, while making them more involved in the efforts to safeguard our natural resources. The belief is that appropriate management and use of approved products help underpin sustainable agriculture and safeguard the environment and public health.
