Report of loss of Crop Protection products published

The industry sponsored report on the financial effects on argic/hort  of loss of crop protection products . It’s a bit late as the cause, risk to hazard ,was made over 7 years ago and we in horticulture we lobbying very hard at this stage . I have not gone back to look at impact risk assessments but I think most of this was documented at the time and the PSD (as it was then) were very strong in representing the massive damage to Brussels.   The Sceptre project, for which lobbied hard  at STC ,is some effort in Hort to deal with the problem recently followed by Mops for ornamentals . There are advanced discussions on follow up to Sceptre taking place . What is certain is that a considerable chunk of the growers HDC levy will need to be devoted to this area and its about efficiency ,diagnostics, alternatives and physical agronomy using precision crop management, rather than finding new crop protection products which used to  cascade from the major crops   .  Graham Ward
