GROWING up on a farm helped Neil Helyer to cultivate his love of nature, and it’s a passion which still drives his daily work, half a century on.

Now it’s also harnessed to his years of knowledge and experience as one of the foremost experts in the field of biological control, using nature, rather than chemicals, to tackle pests threatening industrial-scale crops or the humbler harvest in our gardens.

His work for Littlehampton-based horticulture business Fargro takes Neil not only to farms and huge glasshouse complexes, some where no chemicals are used, to the grounds and gardens of royal palaces, zoos and institutions such as Kew Gardens. He shares his expertise in tackling all manner of pest problems, gives lectures and leads training courses.
