Agriculture by its very nature upsets the balance of ‘nature’ in that we destroy certain ecosystems to create ones for our own benefit. How we can minimise damage to the wider environment is becoming increasingly important as we seek to feed a burgeoning human population.
Reducing pesticides in water is an important part of keeping our environment clean and healthy.
Optima Excel works closely with a wide range of people and organisations involved with agriculture and the wider environment including: ‘Natural England’, ‘River Trusts’, ‘LEAF’, South-West Water, Severn Trent Water, The Crop Protection Association, and The National Farmers Union.
Most recently we have provided support for a campaign to reduce the levels of pesticides in drinking water. Details of this campaign can be found here.
Contact us for more details of how we can help you reduce the impact of fertilisers, pesticides and other agricultural practises on the environment whilst retaining their beneficial effects.
