Lily beetle potential control trialled

Grazers is to release its new G4 formula which trial results suggest a strong effect against damage to lily foliage and flowers from the feeding of red lily beetles.

The Cumbria-based company is celebrating its tenth anniversary with a video and a commitment to develop its retail range of safe and non harmful garden products.

Trials continue on Grazers’ commercial range also with large scale field work shortly concluding at Harper Adams.

Recent trials at the John Innes Centre show foliar applications of Grazers Original and Grazers G+ will induce a plant tonic effect on a commercial varieties of wheat, pea and oilseed rape.

Grazers products are now available commercially in Australia, NZ, South Africa, Hungary, Romania, Ukraine, Estonia, Holland, France.

Grazers' owner Jonathan Tebb Roger said overseas sales continued to grow thanks to new findings in Australia against native bird damage to commercial fruit.
