Crop Production in Southern Britain: Precision Decisions for Profitable Cropping
To be held at
Peterborough Arena, Peterborough, UK
25-26 November 2014
12 BASIS have been awarded as follows: 6 CP, 2 E, 1 PN and 1 HS

The conference, which is the fifth in this series, will provide a major platform for the dissemination of recent developments in crop protection and production research and practice with a focus on dissemination to advisers and practitioners. The conference theme is: Precision Decisions for Profitable Cropping.  Papers are likely to range in content from those with a high biological science focus, to those that report new options for chemical or non-chemical control or address key practical issues for crop production. Topics that are likely to feature throughout the sessions include:

        plant breeding and variety improvement

        optimising nutrient management

        optimising the field management of pesticides

        the role of non-chemical measures to support and sustain pesticide control measures

        understanding and responding to pesticide resistance

        implications of the loss or potential loss of authorisation of key pesticide products

        implications of the Water Framework Directive and NVZ designation for fertiliser management

        new active ingredients and their role in future crop protection systems

        impact of climate change and crop management on crop protection and production

        assessing, mapping and determining site-specific management requirements


Sessions are likely to be arranged around the following topic areas:

        the role of plant breeding in delivering sustainable intensification

        regulatory, environmental, economic and consumer considerations for future crop production

        disease management in combinable crops

        optimising nutrient management for yield, quality and environmental protection goals

        weed control in combinable crops

        insect control in combinable crops

        crop protection in root crops

        crop protection in horticultural crops

        precision application of site-specific management requirements

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.
