Research into practice

SPot Farm West - Heal Farms- Shropshire

21 February 2018


Heal Farms is an estate of arable crops and poultry, growing about 500ha of potatoes each year.

With a historic problem with Potato Cyst Nematodes (PCN) and Parasitic Free Living Nematode (FLN), we are keen to develop our understanding of both infestations by hosting SPot farm West.


Demonstration in the first year focused on:

The tolerance of resistant varieties
Trap crops
Mycorrhizal inoculation
New Bayer nematicide
