4.10    Farm assurance schemes and the Pesticide Industry Voluntary Initiative

If you are already taking part in one or more farm assurance scheme or the Voluntary Initiative, this will not affect your eligibility to apply for the scheme. Hopefully you will find it easier to accumulate points towards your target as a result of the management you are already following. This is particularly the case for assurance schemes which aim for improved environmental standards, such as the Linking Environment And Farming (LEAF) Marque.
