Overview

Charlotte Rowley

“Pest outbreaks can be hard to predict as conditions vary from season to season. For this reason, pest monitoring programmes are a high priority for AHDB Cereals & Oilseeds, especially after the recently enforced restriction on neonicotinoids. Monitoring insecticide resistance is also a key research aim for AHDB Cereals & Oilseeds as well as other sectors of AHDB."
