UK researchers aim to tackle top horticultural pests and diseases

National Institute of Agricultural Botany (NIAB) researchers are taking on four new research programmes tackling high priority pests and diseases, thanks to a new £250,000 initiative from Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), and AHDB.

This pilot initiative between AHDB and BBSRC will address critical research questions associated with high priority pests and diseases that present a significant threat to UK horticultural production. The projects will run from late 2019 until March 2020 and the results will be shared with the industry when available.

Dr John Clarkson is a collaborator with NIAB Research Scientist Dr Helen Bates on a project to develop disease prediction of onion basal rot using a quantitative molecular test.
