New treatments are being tested by the UK’s Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) to help reduce the number of cabbages lost in storage from diseases caused by extreme wet weather.

It is estimated that up to 50% of the harvested crop can be lost on a bad year, valued at £4.5 million.

The aim of the trial is to find alternative storage treatments to prevent disease, and the results will be shared with the brassica-growers industry in summer 2021.
