Baby Leaf Salads Trial Open Day

West Sussex

As part of the AHBD Horticulture weed fellowship Angela Huckle (ADAS) has been carrying out field trials over the past 3 years to test the crop safety of herbicides in baby leaf salads. At this trial open day there will be a chance to view the plots of the wild rocket herbicide trial, where a coded product and Wing-P have been incorporated at 3 different rates, and compared against the industry standard Devrinol for crop safety and efficacy.

There will also be the opportunity to view and discuss research results from the same trial that was carried out last month on baby leaf lettuce and wild rocket in Wiltshire, as well as the 2014 trials on herbicides for weed control in baby leaf lettuce.

BASIS and NRoSO points will be applied for
