Who We Represent

The Forum is not a representative organisation by normal definition.

Whilst its principal funding is derived from industry, the Forum seeks to provide an independent voice and source of information and advice to the sector, the public, key stakeholders and government. Through its activities, it seeks to promote best practice and fully integrated approaches to weed, pest and disease management making use of all techniques available in an effective and efficient manner.

The Forum seeks to represent the sector as a whole both in communicating with the public and government and with organisations in the sector directly involved in weed, pest and disease management. Since its establishment, the progress in achieving its objectives has been substantial and whilst there remains more to be done, there is much to be proud of in raising standards and understanding.
