The plum demonstration centre at NIAB EMR joins the project!

Located in East Malling, the centre was established by horticultural research institute NIAB EMR, and AHDB’s funding will contribute to its further development and the running of the centre. 

AHDB knowledge exchange manager Scott Raffle said: “This new Plum Demonstration Centre offers growers the opportunity to see the results of a number of research projects in practice, such as soil management, weed control, organic mulches, SWD [spotted wing drosophila] control and earwig-safe spray programmes.

Demonstrations of Weed management solutions are going to be carried in the PDC in October 2019, putting the IWM PRAISE project findings into practice.

Opened at the occasion of Fruit Focus 2019, the Plum demonstration centre will showcase the efficacy of weed control technologies and its effect on crop performance.
