This document outlines guidance on pesticide use from The R&A.  Working on the assumption that a correct diagnosis has been made, the guidelines put the emphasis on justification of use by those wishing to apply pesticides on a golf course.

The guidelines address the storage, handling, application and recording of pesticide use and note compliance with legislation as a minimum requirement.
