Fruit Focus 2022



Host plant defence and its place in a crop protection programme

13 Jul 2022
NFU Fruit Forum

Growers are facing increasing pressures from chemical restrictions such as, achieving a set number of residues or dealing with harvest intervals. This session will focus on the use of the plant defence elicitor, Romeo, in a disease management programme. Areas of focus will include, the biology of host plant defence inducers, how to integrate plant defence elicitors in to your IPM programme and key factors to take in to account during and after application.  Attendees will benefit by better understanding how this new technology can be used in their crops and how to ensure that use is effective.
