On April 20, 21 and 22, the well-known Crop Protection Days for vegetable cultivation were organized again in the research greenhouses of Vertify at the World Horti Center in Naaldwijk. Due to the Covid-19 measures, the set-up this year was slightly different than usual, but this did not detract from the knowledge that was shared. Vertify can therefore look back on a successful event with a good exchange of knowledge between practice and research.
Per day (part) 20 advisors and crop protection specialists were welcome. They were presented with the results of the trials conducted at Vertify through 15-minute presentations. The presentations were given by the well-known crop protection product manufacturers. The companies that were present to share their knowledge were: UPL, Ecostyle, Nufarm, FMC, Certis, Bayer, Belchim, Certis, Basf and Plantosys. Trials were demonstrated investigating the effects of plant protection products. There were also trials with natural enemies and trials in which attention was paid to the positive effects of excipients.
