Pea and bean crop walkers' guides and wallcharts

These publications, produced by AHDB Horticulture, will assist growers, agronomists and their staff in the vital task of monitoring pea and bean crops.

They are designed for use in the field to help with accurate identification of pests, diseases, nutrient deficiencies and disorders within a crop. Images of key stages in the life cycles of pests and diseases are included, along with short easy-to-read comments to help with identification.

As it is impossible to show every symptom of every pest or disease, growers are advised to familiarise themselves with the range of symptoms that can be expressed.

This guide does not offer advice on the measures available for controlling these pests or diseases as both chemical active ingredients and their approvals frequently change. However, having identified a particular pest or disease in their crop, growers should refer to other AHDB Horticulture publications that contain information on a range of control measures.
