Crop production with reduced pesticide and fertiliser inputs to reduce carbon footprints
October 13 @ 9:00 am - October 14 @ 1:00 pm
October 13th-14th 9am-1.30pm
Virtual Meeting on Zoom.
Due to changes in legislation the UK food production industry faces serious threats to its productivity and crop safety through the loss of key plant protection products. Moreover growers need to produce same yields from lower inputs to reduce carbon footprints to contribute to the UK commitments to cut emissions by 78% by 2035.
In this event we will explore the challenges and opportunities resulting from this set of circumstance. We will focus on maximising the efficacy of existing and newly introduced pesticides, bio-stimulants and crop nutrition products; the use of alternative products to directly or indirectly replace those that are lost and to look at alternative previously overlooked techniques.
