* Hectares of land treated refer to "active substance treated area. This is the basic area treated by each active substance, multiplied by the number of times the area was treated e.g. A field of 3 ha is treated 4 times with active X. Therefore, the area treated is 12 ha (3x4).

"This data includes all agricultural pesticides used on all crop types, with every type of active substance/chemical, and includes pesticides used in seed treatment.
