Sessions are organised around the following themes:

On the evening of Tuesday (19th) there will be a practice-focused discussion panel led by Caroline Drummond (LEAF, UK) with industry representatives from farming, breeding, research and agronomy. Farmers can attend the conference for £25.00 (Prices incl. VAT).

General admission tickets are £85.00 (£50.00 for students) for the full conference, or £40.00 per day (£20.00 for students) (Prices incl. VAT).
