Having to discard or trim heads due to unsightly disease not only hits profits but is disheartening after the effort put in to producing a crop.

This Tyfu Cymru webinar led by Erika Wedgwood of ADAS provided advice on giving crops the best chance of remaining disease free and what to look out for in the way of various diseases.

Information on cultural controls as well as chemical and biological plant protection products for both outdoor and under-cover leafy salad and baby-leaf crops was provided

In this webinar we covered:

  • Common leaf and root diseases – identifications and methods of spread
  • Cultural control measures – hygiene, environmental management, and variety selection
  • Plant protection products – available products, application timings and methods
