Full Research Project Title: Potential impacts of loss of pesticides on the GB potato industry.
Duration: September 2008 - February 2009

Aim: To identify the most economically significant threats to production, due to the reduced availability of pesticides in the next 5-10 years, in order to inform priorities for levy investment.

The availability, efficacy and desirability of pesticides for the control of weeds, pests and disease in GB potatoes is under pressure.

The project was carried out in parallel with a similar study commissioned by HGCA and the approaches taken were compatible with those of the HGCA investigation so as to provide information on national consequences of the loss of availability of active ingredients. The information has been displayed in a matrix format that can be updated according to changes in the availability of active ingredients.
