UK: AHDB Agronomists’ Conference gets more interactive

Ag Conf Banner Top To encourage dialogue on pressing agronomic challenges, the 2017 AHDB Agronomists’ Conference promises to be the most interactive yet. Taking place on 5 to 6 December 2017 at Peterborough Arena, opportunities to discuss new ways of working will be provided and speakers will showcase how research is becoming more connected – from the lab to the field. For the second year running, AHDB Cereals & Oilseeds will combine forces with AHDB Potatoes and the full two-day programme is now available from the conference web pages. Due to the shifting nature of plant protection product availability and efficacy, a key debate will be on how to protect chemistry. Building on papers on fungicide efficacy against potato blight on day one, a session entitled ‘fungicide futures’ on day two will explore whether the UK needs to work better together to manage product efficacy. Collaboration on soil health will also be in focus, with papers on the AHDB GREATsoils rotations and soil health partnerships.
