Fera's Plant Clinic experts will be on hand at this year’s event to discuss our range of crop health services including, the newly launched Vine Spore Monitoring ServiceCrop TestingNematology Testing and the Big Soil Community.

Protecting sustainable wine production

Vines are vulnerable to infection from fungal plant pathogens such as botrytis and mildew throughout an extensive growing season. If not controlled correctly they can be highly destructive and a persistent problem year upon year. Help protect your vines from these highly destructive pathogens using Fera’s Vine Spore Monitoring Service, which can;

  • Notify you when spores have been airborne in your vineyard

  • Support a more targeted approach to the timing and selection of fungicide applications

  • Reduce costs and promote sustainable wine production

  • Maximise product efficacy and reduce resistance build up

  • Increase grape yield and quality

Plus, at this year's event Guy Thallon, Strategic Business Development Manager at Fera Science, will be discussing the Big Soil Community project and our insights into the state of UK soil, and what that means for you and the future of your crop health. Don't miss it and join him in the NFU Fruit Forum theatre at 15:30.
