Policy and Practice Note
Policy and Practice Note 2
PI: Peter Mills, Harper Adams University College
Dates: 31/08/2007 - 28/02/2011
 
UK crop production is vulnerable to a plethora of pathogens, some of which directly affect crop yields, disrupt the food chain and impact on land use and social infrastructure. Similarly, diseases can have profound effects on the plants in our natural environment. An appraisal of the potential impacts of plant diseases on land use and the UK rural economy is being developed.

Data created

Stakeholders questionnaire survey
Postal survey of key stakeholders, studying their views on possible links between plant diseases and different supply chains.

Data type: Qualitative;Quantitative
Data format: MS Excel
Sample size: 47 stakeholders
Country: United Kingdom
Status: Data released
Farmers and supply chain actors interview
In-depth interviews with farmers and supply chain actors covering perception of plant disease risk and their mode of plant disease management, economics and impacts of disease on their business, for supply chains for two farming sectors: potatoes and wheat. Lincolnshire and Herefordshire/Gloucestershire were selected as comparative regions for study, based on disease incidence mapping of septoria and potato blight, and location quotients of wheat and potato production.
