Improve the performance of biopesticides: Warwickshire

Our AMBER project is helping the horticulture industry to better understand the factors that impact the performance of biopesticides. 

With the decline in conventional plant protection products, biopesticides will continue to become more important for sustainable integrated pest management. 

The event aims to inform, guide and demonstrate best practice when using biopesticides. The following topics will be discussed, along with the provision of a complimentary lunch:

  • Practical recommendations from monitoring biopesticide use on nurseries
  • Improving the application and performance of biopesticides
  • Integrating biopesticides into current control programmes for protected edible and soft fruit crops
  • Development and use of biopesticide products – the industry perspective

Suitable for growers of protected edible and soft fruit crops.
