THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
The seminar will assess next steps for science and innovation in agriculture.
With a new Agriculture Bill setting out the basis of a post-Brexit food and farming policy for England due shortly - and with the announcement that the Government will be introducing a new Environment Bill - attendees will assess the impact of such changes on the agriculture sector and on increasing farming productivity.
Delegates will also discuss what more can be done to improve the utilisation of technology, as outlined in the Industrial Strategy and the impact of potential regulatory changes across food, chemicals and environment on the sector.
Further sessions will look at how agriculture can learn from developments in other industries and is expected to consider what lessons can be learnt from moves towards automation and how data might best be used to advance agricultural practices.
