ADAS recently identified fruit bronzing where large numbers of rose thrips were present in crops, so AHDB commissioned a study to determine the threat and to identify the best control options for growers.

 

This report aims to identify how widespread rose thrips is on UK strawberry farms and to investigate its threat to the industry.

 

The report includes a summary of case studies across seven commercial growing sites, with recommendations for action points to support an integrated pest management strategy to help growers control the pest.
