Crop walker guides

Growers can encounter a wide range of crop problems that can quickly render plants unsaleable unless recognised, diagnosed and dealt with promptly. Often, such problems are linked to pests and diseases, but nutritional and cultural-related disorders may also be involved.

AHDB Horticulture Crop Walkers’ Guides (CWGs) are designed to assist growers, supervisors and nursery staff in the vital task of monitoring crops. They are designed for use directly on the nursery to help with the accurate identification of many of the economically important pests, diseases and disorders. Weed identification is not covered in these publications.
