The conference, which is the fourth in this series, provides data and commentary at a time when the industry starts to develop advice on farm decision-making in 2013 and beyond. It provides a major platform for the dissemination of recent developments in crop production to advisers and practitioners.The first day consists of papers that discuss data from experiments that may directly influence field decision making in 2013 and beyond. Sessions 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 finishes with the presentation of the BCPC awards and a poster session. Tea and coffee will be available all day.The second day consists of more strategic papers and has a more conventional timetable. The papers range in content from those with a high biological science focus to those that address key practical issues of crop management. Themes for the major field crops that are likely to feature throughout the conference are:

• Crop management

• Disease control

• Pest control

• Black-grass control in cereals

• Plant growth regulation

• Crop nutrition

• Reducing spray drift
