New look for The Grower magazine


New look for The Grower magazine

The Grower magazine has been given a complete make-over to help improve how we share the latest technical innovation and research in horticulture with the industry. Growers can look out for the new look magazine from 4 October 2017.


The refreshed magazine will include lots of new features including: opinion columns from leading industry voices, interviews with experts from across the horticultural supply chain and the opportunity to voice your opinions on the pressing issues facing the industry.


Growers will still be able to read the latest updates and results from AHDB-funded research projects and find out how we are working to support their businesses with in-depth analysis and articles.


The first new-look issue includes:

·         Advice on how to increase hoverfly populations in orchards

·         New technique that could help tomato growers take back control over Tuta absoluta

·         First part in a new series to help make biopesticides more effective

·         Latest approaches to stopping spotted wing drosophila


Luke Garner, technical writing manager for The Grower, said: “It’s great to see the new-look magazine finally reach growers as I believe it will really help them to better engage with, and see real benefit from, the work that AHDB is doing, in a way that is both appealing and relatable.”


“However, it is not all about us, and so we endeavoured to feature some of the best and brightest voices the industry has to offer, and would encourage readers to get in touch with their thoughts and ideas too.”


The Grower magazine has been providing the horticulture industry with the news and results of AHDB-funded research for over six years.


The new magazine will land on doormats every two-months from 4 October 2017, make sure you look out for your copy.
