PheroSyn gains funding for pheromone trap for midges and weevils

bean seed quality

Pheromones, used by insects for communication, can be used to lure and trap pests. PheroSyn, a spin-out from Rothamsted Research, has been awarded an Innovate UK grant (£200k) to develop the supply chain for a new set of insect pheromones to tackle midges and weevils. It is working with PGRO on these major pests of beans.
