Controlling ‘The big three pests’ of bedding and pot plant production.

Thursday 28th April, 2-3pm

This hour-long webinar forms part of the AHDB-funded Bedding and Pot Plant Centre project output and is facilitated and hosted by the BOA.

This webinar will focus on the control of three key pests (aphids, thrips and whitefly) which commonly become problematic within bedding and pot plant production.

Discussion will focus on effective control of these three pests with both bioprotectants and conventional insecticides within an Integrated Pest Management programme. All these pests can give rise to significant problems if not well managed, impacting both crop quality and wastage. The webinar will feature presentations from Elysia Bartel, Jude Bennison and David Talbot of ADAS Horticulture  

BASIS and NRoSO points will be sought for both webinars.
