Carrots and Parsnips Update – Mid August 2020

14 August 2020


The second generation of adult carrot fly are now being seen in our monitored crops. Crops that were sown with seed treated with tefluthrin will be not be protected from larvae arising from this second generation of carrot fly.

Foliar insecticide sprays will be needed to target the adult flies before they lay their eggs.
