UK: Bio-pesticides application workshop for protected edible growers

Are you interested in improving the effectiveness of biopesticides in your crop protection programmes?

A free AMBER event is designed to share with growers the important factors that need to be considered when using biopesticides.

The event will include practical workshops and demonstrations about biopesticide application to help growers improve the performance of biopesticides within their integrated pest management programmes.
 
Growers will also have the opportunity to hear updates on the AMBER project so far from biopesticide expert Dave Chandler, University of Warwick and spray application expert Clare Butler-Ellis, Silsoe Spray Applications Unit, along with having the opportunity for discussion with other members of the AMBER project team.

Workshops:
