Managed lower inputs – Part II Strategic Farm Week – Winter 2020

Past Event

Wednesday, 18 November 2020

7:00pm - 8:30pm

Developing the managed lower inputs theme for the Strategic Cereal Farm network, this webinar will be an informal discussion between host Chris Leslie (AHDB Knowledge Exchange Manager, Scotland) and his farmer panel of David Aglen, Rob Fox and Brian Barker, Strategic Cereal Farm hosts.

The conversation will look at how these farmers are trying new methods on-farm and learning from their on-farm trials and demonstrations. Can the results assist with lowering inputs while maintaining productivity and increasing sustainability?

This seminar is free to attend and forms part of Strategic Farm Week – Winter 2020.


Welcome and housekeeping – Chris Leslie


Farmbench trends- inputs price trends and usage – Mark Topliff


Interactive panel discussion: regenerative agriculture in practice Crop Nutrition Management – Georgina Key


lowering inputs at Strategic Farmer Trio  – Brian Barker, David Aglen, Rob Fox


Looking forward – questions, suggestions,  discussions and arguments


Each speaker has been allocated 10 minutes for presenting.

The idea of the webinar is to be interactive so we will be encouraging discussion in each session. Timings may change if discussion is particularly active.

We may stop discussion to make sure there is plenty of time for each speaker and discussion points can be picked up again at the end of the webinar.
