Experts Greg Dawson and Eric Anderson (Scottish Agronomy), Adrian Cunnington (AHDB Potatoes’s head of Sutton Bridge Crop Storage Research) and Anthony Hopkins (Wroot Water) will address a range of topical issues to help you tackle new legislation and production techniques to meet the ever-increasing demands for quality, customer and environmental considerations, along with opportunities for business improvement.

The day will cover a range of timely topics with Greg Dawson looking at virus control options, followed by Eric Anderson examining seed treatments for Rhizoctonia. Adrian Cunnington will follow with a first-time LIVE store audit. A further session led by Eric Anderson will discuss herbicides and metrabuzin sensitivity.

The morning sessions are followed by lunch at the venue, with plenty of opportunity to catch up with industry colleagues.

All sessions will be repeated in the afternoon to ensure those unable to attend in the morning have the chance to benefit from the expert-led programme later in the day
