Description

Thursday 18th May, Whithorn, Dumfries and Galloway

Leatherjackets can be a devastating crop pest, and ‘Dursban’, the chemical that was used to control them, is now banned. So what’s the alternative?

This field lab is investigating whether a garlic-based treatment is effective against leatherjackets, as well as cultural control at different lifecycle stages.

If you’re a farmer, grower or land manager, book your free place now: it’s open to all but we’re expecting this session to fill up quickly, and booking is absolutely essential. Use this online form, or if you prefer you can call Jane on 0131 666 2474, or email jdingwall@soilassociation.org. We'll give you exact venue details when you book.

If you aren't a farmer, grower or landmanager, your place will be charged at £40 + VAT - please call Jane on 0131 666 2474, or email jdingwall@soilassociation.org to arrange with us rather than using this online form.
