The AHDB Agronomists’ Conference is a two-day technical conference covering the latest research developments to help agronomists stay ahead of the game.
The conference is designed to make people think a little differently about agronomy.
Across the two days, around 300 delegates – predominantly agronomists, advisers and BASIS-qualified growers – gather to hear respected researchers present evidence-based papers.
