The mild, moist conditions, found particularly along the south-west coast, are ideal for the development of ‘wet weather’ diseases such as potato blight, oat crown rust, Septoria and Rhynchosporium. The region also offers good locations for herbicide trials in cereals, grassland, potatoes and maize, while BYDV trials are a speciality.

The Assistant Trials Officer for this region is Tim Thorpe, who since 1992 has supported Andrew with all aspects of work.
