Are you making the best use of the bioprotectants and biocontrol's that are available to contribute pest and disease control within your business? Tyfu Cymru is launching a IPDM Network in this first session David Talbot and Chris Creed explained how to get the best results with these types of crop protection products this growing season. When bioprotectants are used properly within an IPM system they can help to create effective and sustainable crop protection programmes. If not used properly, results with bioprotectants may be disappointing.
This support network will provide training on the recognition of pests and diseases and beneficial insects and will help growers determine current pressures and the need for their prevention and control.
