Nematicide Stewardship Programme
Nematode control is integral to the production of high quality, nutritious root crops and granular nematicides are a vital tool in an integrated strategy to control this pest.
The NSP’s role is to ensure a best practice approach across all aspects of their use, from delivery on farm through to operator handling, machinery set up and maintenance, to application and storage.
The NSP is a cross industry group, bringing together Corteva Agri-science and Syngenta, with support from the AIC, FPSA, NFU, PPA, AHDB Potatoes and Richard Austin Agriculture, as well as many independent food groups.
