Fruit pest and disease control

The advice farmers receive on pest and disease control is based on thorough monitoring of crops, and on the use of up-to-date computer modelling techniques, using the Agrovista Growers Choice Interactive (GCI) modelling service. This ensures the most efficient, timely and effective use of plant protection products. Advice also aims to maximise the use of post-harvest treatments and cultural control methods, championing Integrated Pest Management (IPM).
