Posted on 30 April 2021

BIOLOGICALS & INSECTICIDES Effective pest control in pulse crops.

Clayton Plant Protection offers a wide range of crop protection products for use in peas, field beans and lupins. As high-value crops, achieving healthy crop growth to maximise both yield and quality is vital, and relies on good agronomy and effective control of damaging pests, diseases and weeds through the growing season.

The pulses sector operates in both animal feed and human consumption markets. Key to crop success and marketability for end-use markets (supermarkets etc.) are continued focus around weed control, emerging pest and disease problems, and developing IPM programmes that combine good agronomic practice, crop protection and novel, naturally derived control methods with minimal environmental impact.

As high value crops destined for multiple end uses including both animal feed and human consumption markets, maximising crop yield & quality in pulses relies on effective, early control of damaging disease, pests and weeds. Careful planning in terms of product choice will help growers achieve the best results for their pulse crops this season.
