Bean seed fly meeting


Bean seed fly meeting

Wednesday, 8th December 2021, 10 am - 12 pm - in Microsoft Teams. Please register below and you will receive a joining link by email prior to the event.

The management of bean seed fly has been causing considerable concern for growers over the last few years. The main reason for the concern is the loss, or imminent loss, of insecticidal seed treatments, since to date this method of applying insecticides has been the most effective. Several organisations are working on the problem and at a meeting for growers and agronomists on 9th December 2020, some of their recent activities were presented and discussed. The approaches investigated represent several components of a developing IPM strategy.

This year Becky Howard (PGRO), Becca McGowan and Rosemary Collier (Warwick Crop Centre) and Bruce Napier (NIAB) will give short updates on their work. Becca is a PhD student at Warwick Crop Centre funded jointly by the AHDB, PGRO and the University of Warwick. We will be joined by Max Newbert from Syngenta.
