Phil has managed many projects in support of the agricultural and horticultural industry and UK Defra plant health policy.
Phil manages of number of projects on disease epidemiology and control. His main areas of research are risk prediction for Fusarium ear blight and associated mycotoxins and control of downy mildews with a particular emphasis on impatiens, basil and aquilegia downy mildew.
Phil also co-ordinates the team's efficacy testing work stream which includes primary (laboratory) and secondary (glasshouse and small scale field) screening of early development compounds, larger scale trials for near market and commercially available products and resistance screening.
Efficacy screening for new plant protection products. Successful product registration relies on robust efficacy testing, you can rely on Fera to provide data across all stages of screening to support you with early product registration. Fera offers all the scientific expertise you need to assess and demonstrate the efficacy of your products. .
