Webinar – downy mildew control in column stocks

  • The CFC/AHDB will present a Webinar on Thursday the 21st January giving an update on the latest developments with downy mildew control in cut flower column stocks.
  • Join us to learn about the latest developments with downy mildew control in cut flower column stocks.
  • Column stocks are currently the main non-bulb, protected cut flower crop grown in the UK. Under conducive conditions, crops are susceptible to the pathogen which causes downy mildew (Peronospora parasitica). Previous outbreaks have shown how important it is to have a robust, but flexible disease control programme to keep crops clean.
  • In this webinar Selchuk Kurtev, Certis, will set the scene outlining the current regulatory situation for the cut flower industry with regards to the process of plant protection product approvals and EAMUs.
  • Lyndon Mason, the CFC Project Manager, will summarise the problem faced by the industry in terms of downy mildew and the trials undertaken to resolve the issue.
  • Selchuk will then provide his thoughts as to how spray programmes will need to develop in light of potential changes to the approval of various plant protection products.
