Potato Cyst Nematode (PCN) Study Tour to the Netherlands

1 February 2019

Applications are open to join a two day tour of Wageningen University and Research, in the Netherlands. The tour will take place 27 February - 1 March.

A group of 12 – 15 growers and agronomists will visit two sites at Wageningen and cover topics including:

  • Dutch PCN policy
  • PCN control strategy
  • PCN testing
  • Plant inspection
  • Variety testing
  • PCN resistance
  • Control of Meloidogyne fallax.

We have recently published up to date resources on PCN control, but this tour provides a chance to examine a quite different approach to that of most UK growers/agronomists.
