Desiccation Workshop 4.30pm to 6pm
This year, in light of chemical loss and the need to consider alternative methods of haulm destruction, Russell Whiteford, Belchim Crop Protection will deliver a workshop focussing on pulverisation as a greener method of haulm destruction. We'll discuss the pros and cons of pulverisation v desiccation, not just the financial impact on growers, agronomists and chemical companies but also the effects on the environment, the average farming calendar and limited resources such as specialist machinery.
Seminar session chairs will provide a short summary of the technical and research seminars and we'll finish the event with a hog roast and refreshments courtesy of AHDB.
We're organising this extra event to benefit anyone who won't be able to come for the whole day and for exhibitors who have worked hard staffing stands and plots. We hope that you will join us for this event and we invite all exhibitors to stay and take part.
