Contractors are innovators and can bring forward practical application of new techniques and technology, not only improving efficiency but also bringing environmental benefits to soil management, water protection, and greenhouse gas emissions, alongside machinery development and public safety. The NAAC continues to lobby Government to recognise this important contribution to the future of UK agriculture. .
The NAAC represents the contracting industry on the Voluntary Initiative (VI) steering and strategy group which assists Government in the implementation of pesticide legislation in an industry lead way. A representative also sits on the Pesticides Forum, which reviews Government Policy on pesticides.
