Tailored to address local issues related to the production of cereals and oilseeds the AHDB/SRUC/FAS Agronomy 2020 events focus on applied research and on-farm practice.
The events will showcase the latest fungicide performance results as well as using the Recommended Lists to select for appropriate variety traits. There will be opportunities in two-panel sessions to discuss farming in the future: How can we make arable systems sustainable? What are the market and export opportunities?
