Storage Day

The day is intended for store owners, managers and agronomists looking for more ‘in depth’ information on current topical areas specifically relevant to storage which will be presented by AHDB Potatoes and industry specialists.

The morning presentations will be at the Bentley Hotel, Lincoln, LN6 9NH (conveniently situated on the A46, with a dual carriageway link to the A1 at  Newark). In the afternoon, there will be a set of interactive on-farm workshops which will take place just down the road at Clay Farm, North Scarle, LN6 9ES, courtesy of GH Chennells (Farms) Ltd. Co-owner Andrew Chennells is a finalist for the Farmers Weekly ‘Green Farmer of the Year’ award.
