Powdery mildew in field crops, by Professor Geoffrey Dixon
Old and new structures help Rainbow Plants to grow top-quality nursery stock, Sally Drury discovers.
Feeding by slugs and snails is so economically damaging to farmers, growers and gardeners that millions of pounds have been devoted to finding new ways to combat these molluscan pests.
This disease compromises brassica, pea and bean field crop quality, Professor Geoffrey Dixon warns.
These pathogens are characterised by sporulating on the under-surfaces of leaves with chlorotic and necrotic areas found on the upper surfaces, writes Geoffrey Dixon.
International seed breeders opened the gates at their trial grounds in North Holland to show growers their newest varieties, Gavin McEwan reports.
Being involved in field-level research can improve growers' skills as well as increasing understanding of particular issues, Soil Association head of horticulture Ben Raskin told the Rijk Zwaan UK organic open day.
The trials marked the first opportunity for new specialist breeder Westland Seeds to show its sweet pepper range.
Glasshouse vegetable trials in the Netherlands feature hydroponics, speciality tomatoes and new sweet pepper range.
