Lettuce - diseases, pests and post-harvest quality
This event was held on Wednesday, 20th October, 3-4pm - in Microsoft Teams.
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.
