The conference, which is the fourth in this series, will provide the data at a time when the industry starts to develop advice on farm decision making in 2013 and beyond. It will provide a major platform for the dissemination of recent developments in crop production and production research and practice with a focus on dissemination to advisers and practitioners.
The first day will consist of papers that discuss data from experiments that may directly influence field decision making in 2013 and beyond. Sessions will continue all day, with 20 minute breaks in between and the provided packed lunch can be eaten within the session should the delegates wish to hear all the papers. The day will finish with a poster session in mid-late afternoon. Tea and coffee will be available all day. The second day will consist of more strategic papers and have a more conventional timetable. Hence, the papers will range in content from those with a high biological science focus, to those that address key practical issues for plant breeding, crop management, soil care, crop nutrition and weed, pest and disease management in crops. Themes for the major field crops that are likely to feature throughout the conference are:
o Crop management and plant breeding
o Disease control in cereals
o Disease control in other crops
o Weed control
o Crop nutrition/soil care and improvement
Presentations and posters from this Conference will be produced together in a volume of the Aspects of Applied Biology series. Copies will be available to delegates at the Conference.
