Image result for ahdbThe AHDB Agronomists’ Conference 2016 was held on Dec 7 – 8 in the Peterborough Arena in the UK. This is a two-day technical conference covering the latest agronomy related research developments. The conference is designed to make people think a little differently about agronomy. Across the two days, around 300 delegates – predominantly agronomists, advisers and BASIS-qualified growers – gathered to hear respected researchers present evidence-based papers. This video, filmed during the 2016 Conference and published on the AHDB YouTube channel, contains all presentations, although viewers can select individual presentations of choice to watch.
