BCPC Weed Review looks at the weed challenges over the past 50 years
The 50th BCPC Annual Weed Review chaired by Dilwyn Harris, Dow AgroSciences and held at Rothamsted Research, provided an opportunity to reflect on the significant arable weed control challenges over the past half-century and consider the progress made.
The new 5th edition of BCPC’s Manual of Biocontrol Agents – a toolbox for biocontrol and integrated pest management (IPM) – was launched as an online resource at the Annual Biocontrol Industry Meeting (ABIM), in Basel, Switzerland in October.
BCPC has responded to the recent Chemical Regulation Directorate (CRD) consultation on the adoption of low-drift nozzles within updated interim measures for aquatic buffer zones. It is concerned that the proposed changes only involves drift reducing nozzles rather than all DRTs.
