Pesticide use revealed

NINETY-EIGHT per cent of arable crops were treated with pesticide last year, with a combined weight of 1,490 tonnes, a new government survey into pesticide usage has revealed. The figures were disclosed in three reports published by Scotland’s chief statistician: pesticide use on arable crops and potato stores in 2016, pesticide use on soft fruit crops in 2016 and rodenticides on arable farms 2016.
