The AHDB wish to commission research and knowledge exchange that will provide information and opportunities to reduce the economic impacts in the short, medium and longer-term for diseases caused by a range of bacterial pathogens in a number of UK crops.
Work should be relevant to bacterial diseases of horticultural crops in the UK, focusing on the following sectors: Field Vegetables, Hardy Nursery Stock and Protected Ornamentals.
Work on crops such as hops and grapes is not included in this call. Due to on-going research funded elsewhere, work on Xylella fastidiosa is also not included in this call. Bacterial diseases in mushrooms will be considered in a supplementary call, and should not be included in proposals for this request for proposals. Additional research on blackleg on potatoes is currently not included in this call.
