Essex Rivers Hub

The aim of this initiative is to work with farmers and growers to substantially reduce concentrations of metaldehyde, the main ingredient in slug pellets, found in the River Wid and its tributaries.  The Chelmer & Blackwater Catchment Partnership is focusing this autumn to ensure that all slug pellet applicators are calibrated, operators are fully trained and asking farmers to “do something different” by trying a new slug pellet type, thereby ensuring the protection of the watercourses in the River Wid catchment.
