British growers can gain insights at forthcoming workshop and farm walk.
INNOVATIVE Farmers are reminding British growers and suppliers that they can join a forthcoming workshop and farm walk in Shropshire hosted by Nick Taylor of TC & N Taylor Farms.
The event will cover strategies for identifying and controlling wireworm damage in potatoes, and will include a visit of trials testing biofumigant crops and cover crops as non-chemical control options.
Speakers include independent agronomist and wireworm specialist Martyn Cox (Blackthorn Arable), agronomist Richard Griffith (Produce Solutions) and integrated pest management researcher Dr Ben Clunie (Harper Adams University).
Further details are available on our events page here.
* Organisers of the 2023 National Potato Industry Awards are also reminding people that they still have time to enter a growing manager or company that is helping with trials or going that extra mile to help with research for the good of British growing. Details of the award, and other categories, are here.
