Denmark Introduces New Pesticide Restrictions for Public Recreational Grasslands

Your substances


Starting January 1, 2024, Denmark enforced new regulations prohibiting the use of all but low-risk pesticides on recreational grasslands with public access. These areas include public parks, sports fields, and other community green spaces. Since currently no low-risk pesticides are approved for such use, these areas must be maintained without pesticides.

Previously approved products that are no longer allowed must be disposed of through municipal waste programs.

The rules do not apply to golf courses, which are not considered public access areas, and different regulations govern pesticide use in private gardens. Further details on pesticide usage on various types of grasslands and private gardens are available on the Danish Environmental Protection Agency’s website
