Components of a Crop Management Matrix
Adrian Jackson, Consultant, Koppert UK Ltd


Koppert UK is well positioned to take advantage of the trends towards sustainable plant production and the decline in availability of conventional pesticides. The process of change has left gaps and weaknesses in the current conventional approach to crop production. Adapting to change is not always straight forward and adopting a different way is never easy, but in business it’s almost an inevitable requirement in order to remain viable and competitive.

Koppert is a knowledge-based company, and an innovator with a view about current and future threats and the solutions that will be required to mitigate their impact in the production of crops here in the UK and beyond. Against this background, Koppert place great emphasis on the importance of adopting a balanced holistic approach to crop production. Since the Koppert holistic approach is multifaceted and interactive, it is more appropriately described as a crop management matrix. By taking a step by step approach growers will be more equipped to overcome solution shortfalls today and meet the crop protection challenges of the future. An overview of the components within the crop management matrix will be presented by Adrian Jackson (Consultant, Koppert UK).
