Those attending heard presentation on subjects including integrated control approaches, sprayer efficiency and effectiveness and the importance of training and keeping updated. There was also a policy update from the Chemicals Regulation Division of HSE and plenty of time for networking and questions.
The event was hosted by Complete Weed Control who rounded up the event with some brief presentations on recent developments, invasive weed control and related matters. The audience came from all sections of the amenity sector and was also attended by representatives of the Welsh Government.
