Complete: Weed Control Review: Desk study

Timescale: 2018 - 2019
Project Lead: Dr Sarah Cook
Project Sponsor: BBRO as part of collaborative programme

Project Summary

ADAS were contracted to review current weed control options and future opportunities for UK crops.

Main Objectives

In the UK, growers rely almost entirely on synthetic herbicides to control weeds cost effectively. However, the use of these products is coming under increasing pressure from legislation, climate change and market requirements, such as reduced pesticide inputs and maximum residue levels. This, combined with herbicide resistance, is having a significant impact on arable and horticultural sectors
