THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
The seminar will assess next steps for science and innovation in agriculture.
It will be an opportunity to assess the impact of new legislation being introduced as the UK leaves the Common Agricultural Policy, including an Environment Bill and the recently published Agriculture Bill. The seminar also comes as the UK Government prepares a number of no deal guidance papers including on animal breeding, pesticides, GM products and plant variety rights.
Delegates will discuss what these developments mean for productivity, and for those working in the agriculture and food sectors - including the commitment to increase productivity and invest in research and development in areas such as soil health, alongside a system of payment for ‘public goods’ in areas such as water quality, emissions, biodiversity, and animal welfare standards.
