crops one use

AHDB Horticulture has launched a new £1.4m programme of crop protection product trials.

From this spring, the four-year Sceptre+ trials will target disease, pest and weed problems identified in AHDB’s horticulture strategy, and will aim to provide an earlier evaluation of new products for horticultural crops, alongside building a knowledge base for product performance and safety. The project would speed up new product authorisation said AHDB.
