Growers urged to complete CPMP

GROWERS WHO have not yet completed a Crop Protection Management Plan (CPMP) are being urged to do so to supplement their Entry Level Scheme applications.

“With ELS now central to the farming and growing industries, a CPMP makes sound business sense,” said the National Farmers Union pesticides advisor, Neil Kift.

As well as providing a useful overview of all spraying activities, the new 2005-7 form allows growers for the first time to compare spraying programmes over the next two years, he said.

Updated CPMP forms for 2005-7 are now available from the Voluntary Initiative website,, or by emailing
