Join Tyfu Cymru’s Ornamentals IPDM network for a Study Day at Caernarfon based young plant producer Seiont Nurseries. Led by ADAS Consultants David Talbot and Andrew Hewson, the meeting will enable attendees to see and discuss the principles and practices of IPDM (Integrated Pest & Disease Management) in a commercial setting via a structured nursery walk. Topics covered will include: crop monitoring, nursery hygiene and cultural control measures, seasonal problems / control measures (including the control of fungal / bacterial leaf-spots and downy mildew), bio-controls and timely use of suitable plant protection products. The day will also give those attending an opportunity to share experiences – and hopefully successes (!)- in what will very much be a peer-to-peer learning setting.
This study visit is funded by Tyfu Cymru, Lunch will be provided, but please provide your own transport.
Covid safety measures will be in place. Full details will be forwarded to attendees following registration.
Numbers are restricted to 15
