This proposal covers two elements of work; further monitoring on grower holdings in 2015 and Pansy sample testing for a virus potentially associated with PaMS. Continued monitoring will gather further evidence towards determining the triggers for PaMS (temperature, humidity, DLI, irrigation and production inputs and practices). The virus tests will confirm any association of Viola white distortion associated virus (VWDaV) with PaMS symptoms.

The overall aim is to determine which, if any, of the recently approved insecticides, or insecticides likely to achieve approval within the next 2-3 years, are effective against large narcissus fl
The aim of this project is to screen fungicides against narcissus basal rot.
This project will explore the capability of Trichoderma viride and other commercial fungal and bacterial biopesticide products, applied either as amended composts or as bulb
The aim of this project is to identify alternative herbicides for weed control in narcissus with potential for SOLAs.
This project aims to discover whether internal bulb temperatures attain the target of 3 hours at 44.4°C during commercial hot-water treatment (HWT), and use this information to implement HWT pract
This project aims to determine the suitability of chlorine dioxide as a biocide for use in daffodil bulb dip treatments.
This project aims to improve the armoury of fungicides available for control of narcissus leaf diseases.
This small scale project was undertaken to investigate the feasibility of using a prototype MRI sensor for the automated detection of basal rot.
The aim of this project is to investigate Chlorine dioxide for general disinfectant use in narcissus growing, and in this project it would be tested in narcissus HWT and cold-dipping.
