Integrated Pest Management

The general principle of IPM is that the prevention and/or suppression  of harmful organisms should be achieved or supported especially by alternatives to synthetic chemical pesticides. In the EU, the Directive on Sustainable Use of Pesticides (directive 2009/128/EC) clearly states that member states shall take all necessary measures to promote low pesticide-input pest management, giving wherever possible priority to non-chemical methods.

PAN Europe advocates for pesticide dependency reductions, encouraging policy changes towards ensuring that farmers apply integrated pest management based on solid agronomic practices to preventpest build-up and on the use of non-chemical alternatives, where needed. Farmers should apply pesticides only where absolutely needed and carefully select pesticides with the lowest harm.
