Utilization and storage of pesticides in the UK is being undertaken in a sustainable manner, with incidences of adverse impacts on human health and environment being reduced to the minimum. The law for approving pesticides in the UK requires that only plant protection products authorized by Ministers are to be sold, supplied, used, stored or advertised.

The Chemicals Regulation Directorate (CRD) of Health and Safety Executive (HSE) acts as the delivery body for regulating plant protection products authorized for sale, supply, use and storage in the UK. Despite the fact that the use of pesticides in the UK is governed by various departments, there still remains a demand among the local populace to curtail the use of pesticides. This has been further promoted by several non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that are either totally or partially committed to reducing pesticide utilization, as also by the media that keeps a careful watch over pesticide-related incidents.

Segmentation is done based on type which include synthetic and Biopesticides and also based on application. Crop-Based applications dominate the UK consumption of Pesticides in terms of share, as well as growth.
