Agronomy Roadshows 2022: Growing for a sustainable future

  • January 26 2022
    10:00am - 1:00pm

AHDB, FAS and SRUC will be coming together in January 2022 and running three Agronomy roadshows as on-line events. Two of these were originally planned as physical events at Carfraemill and Thainstone but, with the rise in covid cases as we move in to the Christmas period, they will all run as virtual on-line events.

The final session is on Sustainable Futures Agronomy and there will be quick-fire technical updates followed by case studies from growers discussing their experience of applying more integrated and regenerative systems and working towards net zero, followed by a discussion session with the panel.
