SF 074: Integrated pest and disease management for raspberry production (HortLink)


A successful Integrated Pest and Disease Management (IPDM) programme has been developed for raspberries which will greatly reduce and possibly eliminate pesticide residues. The programme will give good results but is likely to cost on average between £25 and £45 extra per tonne to implement compared to a conventional grower management and routine pesticide based programme.

About this project

The aim of this project was to develop sustainable methods of integrated management of Botrytis, powdery mildew, raspberry beetle, raspberry cane midge (and the associated disorder 'midge blight') and aphids in protected raspberry crops.
