Warwick Crop Centre Research Highlights - Webinar on Lettuce

Lettuce Diversity

Lettuce - diseases, pests and post-harvest quality

Wednesday, 20th October, 3-4pm - in Microsoft Teams. Please register below and you will receive a joining link by email prior to the event.

Lettuce growers face a number of challenges in producing quality product. Major causes of loss of quality are pests and diseases in the field and post-harvest discolouration ('browning' and 'pinking') which is a major limitation to the shelf life of prepared salads.

This webinar will discuss our current research activities on the three key areas outlined below and will be the first of a series of seminars on areas of our research.
