Grower Guides: Apples
As part of our research project, we are conducting growers’ trials of apple production systems that leave zero pesticide residues, by controlling pests and diseases using biological pesticides and innovative pest detection tools.
We would like to thank everyone who attended our free Virtual Open Day for Growers on Thursday 15th October 2020 where we presented the strategies being used and growers’ experiences so far, with a question and answer session at the end. The videos of the presentations from the day can be seen below:

Part of our project is to better understand growers’ interest and attitudes towards pest management methods that leave zero pesticide residues on fruit. Would you be willing to complete a short questionnaire (10-15 minutes) on your experiences and attitudes towards pest management? This would help us with our research.
You can find the online questionnaire at the following link: Survey: Fruit Grower Attitudes Towards Zero Residue Pest Management Approaches
