Arable farmers are being urged to complete the new Crop Protection Management Plan to demonstrate their responsible attitude to pesticide use.
The VI and unions hope the new online version will help the scheme meets the 2009 VI target of 1.7m ha.
NFU deputy president Meurig Raymond said: “The CPMP remains a vital measure for proper planning when using pesticides and this is great news that it is now available online.”
Five years since they were introduced under the VI, the new online CPMP will now automatically calculate the farm score, suggest improvements that can be made on-farm and produce a practical diagram of the farm for members.
The new format will be updated every year encouraging a regular annual review.
