Field vegetable review magazine showcases HDC research

Vegetable growers can now get up to date with the latest HDC research with the 2011 edition of the HDC Field Vegetables Review magazine. The Horticultural Development Company (HDC) published and distributed the 2011 magazine to all field vegetable growers this month to provide them with an overview of the field vegetable research that is currently being funded by HDC.

The review features brief articles on a wide range of recently completed and ongoing research projects on pest and disease, weeds, breeding and crop production for field vegetable crops.

It also provides an overview of all the new projects which have been commissioned to start in 2011 along with details on the way HDC operates for growers to secure new crop protection approvals.

Commenting on the latest review, vegetable grower and field vegetable panel chairman John Sedgwick of Stewarts of Tayside said “The field vegetable crop group includes many crops and the HDC manages the growers levy to meet the needs of as many growers as possible. Equally as important is keeping levy payers informed of what work has been done or is underway. This magazine collates all this work to keep growers up to date.”
