Independent agronomists descend on CHAP

Independent agronomists descend on CHAP

Independent agronomists from Prime Agriculture visited NAFIC this week to discuss the support to agriculture with work being done by CHAP and Fera. The company provide consultative advice to farmers covering over half the arable area in the east of England. There were a number of concerns expressed by the agronomists, particularly relating to the loss of active substances and the spread of resistance, making it more difficult to provide an effective crop protection programme.

The E-Flows mesocosm was of great interest, with its potential to support new and existing pesticides by generating more accurate aquatic ecotox data for risk assessments. The Crop Monitor Pro was seen as having great potential as a decision support tool to allow better timing of pesticide applications by predicting pest and disease levels.
