  • IMG 1951
Join FAS, SRUC, The Voluntary Initiative and NFUS for interactive workshop sessions where we will discuss the gains that can be made from key IPM practices and look at the risks. The sessions will let you see how IPM approaches can be tailored to your farm and point you at key resources. In addition to the interactive workshop sessions where you can also discuss IPM approaches with peers, staff will be available all day for one to one advice.
Did you know….
  • IPM with its holistic approach to managing pest, weed and disease risks is a key part of more regenerative farming practices that reduce reliance on plant protection products (PPP’s).
  • To meet clean water, net zero and biodiversity targets IPM plans will become a key part of rural payment schemes going forward.
  • IPM uptake increases with awareness and farms that score highly attend open days and discussion groups
  • IPM plans need to be tailored to each farm and updated each season
  • More work is needed on the risks associated with certain practices such as cover crops and grass margins
