VIDEO - Emergency Vine Weevil Summit Panel Debate

An Emergency Vine Weevil Summit was hosted at the Thenford estate near Banbury on Tuesday 12 July 2016.

The event was organised by the HTA, ICL and Bayer with Horticulture Week as Media Partner and with the support of Fargro and BASF. 

More than 100 growers attended but many were turned away from the sellout event, so Horticulture Week has created a video of the Emergency Summit panel debate to enable those who were not able to attend to hear the experts discuss key issues around the control of vine weevil in ornamentals crops.

Horticulture Week editor Kate Lowe chaired the panel which comprised:

  • John Adlam representing the HTA
  • Jude Bennison, ADAS
  • Marcus Cousins, Aylett Nurseries
  • Robert Storer, BASF
  • John Richards, John Richards Nurseries
  • Alastair Hazell, Darby Nursery Stock
  • Dr. Colin Mumford, Bayer
  • Andrew Wilson, ICL
  • Dr. Paul Sopp, Fargro

A full report of the event will feature in the next issue of Horticulture Week magazine, out on Friday 22nd July.
