Agronomy 2020 – Inverness


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 Agronomy 2020 events, organised by AHDB, SRUC and FAS, will focus on using an Integrated Pest Management approach to growing arable crops.

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?
