The National Action Plan on the Sustainable Use of Plant Protection Products (NAP) is an action plan of the Federal Government. Its aim is to reduce the risks and effects on human health and the environment that can be associated with the use of authorised plant protection products. In particular, dependence on plant protection products is to be reduced by taking into account the principles of integrated plant protection and the use of non-chemical plant protection methods. The NAP is an important component of the implementation of the Plant Health Framework Directive 2009/128/EC in Germany.
The "Annual Report 2023" brochure contains brief reports on the current status of implementation of selected measures under the NAP.
