NCO Foundation

The NCO Foundation (Non-Chemical Weed Control on Paved Surfaces) is the organisation of non-chemical methods and techniques of weed control for the sector in the Netherlands. Examples include hot water, hot air, burning and brushing. The NCO Foundation sees it as its task to disseminate and share objective knowledge and information on non-chemical weed control and to make knowledge on non-chemical weed control accessible. The NCO Foundation has as goal the development and promotion of non-chemical weed control on paved surfaces. For this reason it is important that these innovative methodologies are able to rely on good market access. However, this market access is currently inadequately secured. In this context, the NCO Foundation is involved in bringing about the Tweede Nota Duurzame Gewasbescherming (Second Note on Sustainable Crop Protection). Secretary of State Mansveld (Infrastructure and Environment) is having the ban on the toxic weed control agent glyphosate on so-called ‘paved surfaces’ implemented as early as the beginning of 2016. With this she is taking responsibility for a healthy environment and the health of people. Mansveld wrote this on 3 September 2013 in a letter to the Tweede Kamer (Lower House).
