SCEPTREplus ornamentals webinar

SCEPTREplus outcomes for ornamental crops

Webinar - Thursday, 29th September 2022, 2pm - 4pm

Join us for this webinar where you will learn about the new crop protection solutions for ornamental crops identified by the very successful 5 year SCEPTREplus programme funded by AHDB and by contributions from crop protection companies.
The SCEPTREplus programme delivered new sustainable plant protection products for use in crops across horticulture. It focussed on high priority disease, pest and weed problems in order to support the approval of products and develop integrated pest management programmes.
The SCEPTREplus programme ended on 31st March 2022 and a round up of its outcomes for ornamental crops will be shared through the presentations below delivered by experienced crop protection scientists.
