Certis offering CPD points for ‘Slug Trail’ at Cereals

Growers, agronomists and advisors visiting the Certis stand at the Cereals event, 12-13 June, will have the opportunity to earn NRoSO points.

Growers, agronomists and advisors visiting the Certis stand at the Cereals event, 12-13 June, will have the opportunity to earn NRoSO points. 

With two NRoSO points available, Certis’ arable crops Product Manager and Corporate Communications Assistant, Inez Cornell, says that the ‘Slug Trail’ is an ideal opportunity to find out more about the safe use of slug pellets, whilst furthering individual professional development.

To earn the CPD (continuous professional development) points at the event, NRoSO qualified members are required to visit the Certis stand (4-D-430) and take part in the Slug Trail; which requires visitors to go to the nearby Anglian Water and Severn Trent Water stands, to read the available literature in order to complete a short questionnaire.  

“Cereals is an excellent platform to reiterate the importance of responsible, integrated slug control bearing in mind the excellent environmental benefits associated with ferric phosphate slug pellets. 

“Through on-stand resources we will be providing visitors with access to the Environment Agency’s ‘What’s in your Backyard’ #WIYBY website through iPads, which allows growers to determine if they’re in a ‘hotspot’ area. This information can assist with determining the most appropriate slug control programme.

The two-day key, technical arable event will offer growers the opportunity to ask any questions of industry specialists available on the stands involved in the trail,” concludes Inez. 

The Certis stand is located just off the main thoroughfare en route to Sprays and Sprayers (just off the Central Avenue, on fourth Avenue, stand 4-D-430).
