Course Overview

This course looks at the methods used to protect and enhance biodiversity, in the context of sustainable farming and best practice in the use of crop protection.

Originally designed by a partnership of organisations including FWAG, LEAF and BASIS, BETA forms part of the Voluntary Initiative; a package of measures put together by the UK farming industry, as a practical alternative to a pesticide tax.

Although originally designed for advisers and agronomists, the course has become popular with farmers and farm managers.
