Online support for UK OSR growers

With the recent Limagrain TuYV survey showing infection levels up to 90% in some of the UK’s key OSR growing areas, yield losses from TuYV can be expected to be high this year.

But what can be done to prevent similar yield losses in next year’s crop?

Limagrain’s has a newly revamped TuYV website which provides growers and agronomists with the latest information, news and expert opinion on the threat from TuYV and possible solutions for next season’s crop.

“Covering all you need to know about TuYV from recognizing the symptoms of the disease TuYV, how it impacts yields, to solutions such as advice on choosing resistant varieties, and optimising agchem solutions, the website is intended to be a one-stop-shop for everything TuYV,” says Les Daubney of Limagrain.
