Ornamentals Review, which was launched at the HTA National Plant Show (25-26 June), highlights HDC-funded projects in recent years for the benefit of the bulbs and outdoor flowers, hardy nursery stock and protected ornamentals sectors.
The aim of the review is to summarise key research from across the HDC's portfolio of work. This includes projects on pest, disease and weed control as well as a range of crop-management issues, highlighting areas of cross-sector relevance. It also includes information on crop protection and Extension of Authorisation of Minor Uses (EAMUs) secured for growers by the HDC.
HDC knowledge-transfer manager Wayne Brough said: "Ornamentals Review is an effective way to show the extent of the research and development work funded by the HDC to directly support the industry. It also aims to highlight to growers some of the key findings from this research that may benefit them in their businesses, including a wealth of training and information resources aimed at their needs."
