Good grain store hygiene is fundamental to UK growers who want to reduce post-harvest losses.
Up to 10% of grain stored can be lost to mites and insects – a significant figure but one that can be avoided if growers adopt an integrated approach to pest management.

Know an arable innovator worthy of recognition? Nominate them now!
Dow AgroSciences are proud to be sponsoring the Arable Innovator Award at this year’s British Farming Awards.
For the past few years, these awards have recognised many innovators, forward thinkers and those willing to challenge the norm of “we’ve always done it that way”.
We are well known for our strengths in providing solutions for UK agriculture but in the past few years we have really picked up the pace in our offering. Arylex™ Active was the first in a strong pipeline of new chemistry designed to solve problems for farmers and behind it we have two further molecules, Isoclast™ Active, an insecticide and Inatreq™ Active, a fungicide.
Reworked your rotation to boost the resilience of your arable business?
Adopted new approaches to crop establishment, agronomy, harvesting or storage or pushing your yields to new levels?
Maybe you have come up with new ways of marketing your crops or identified new markets to limit the negative impacts of commodity price fluctuations?
Are you or someone you know innovative? Pushing the boundaries in arable farming? If so, entries and nominations are now open! Nominate someone, or yourself, here.
Entering the award is free and all shortlisted entrants will receive two complementary invites to the awards night.
We look forward to seeing your entries!
North weed control update: Come rain or shine, don’t ignore late-season weed control
Farmers in Northumberland, Durham and Yorkshire should not ignore their spring clean up of broad-leaved weeds despite challenging conditions across the counties. Late May is typically the last opportunity to take out key problem weeds while fungicides are applied to tackle any disease pressures. A very dry April across the three counties has slowed crop growth and patchy rain is now reducing the number of spraying days available. Winter wheat crops are looking thin in places,” said Caroline Smith, commercial technical manager for the north at Dow AgroSciences.
Dow AgroSciences Ltd provides UK growers with both well-established and innovative crop protection products, which are all backed by extensive expertise gained in the UK and globally.
Our science has developed brands that have stood the test of time, delivering top class performance for decades. At the same time, we have a commitment to deliver at least one new product in the UK each year – a promise that we have met over the past five years and which we will continue to meet from our on-going investment in research and development.
