A PhD student working with Rothamsted Research and the University of Reading is looking for agronomists and farmers to complete a short survey on pest control in oilseed rape.

Dr Sam Cook’s research team are studying the potential of a range of pest control practises for growing OSR following the restriction of neonicotinoid seed treatments. The 15 minute survey will provide an understanding of farmers and agronomists views of pest issues and management in OSR, past, present and future.
