Prospects for UK Cereals Seminar

This technical seminar, chaired by Mr Tom Bradshaw, Essex Arable Farmer and NFU Crops Board Chairman, at the Farmers Club on Monday 24 September 2018, organised by the Farmers Club and the British Crop Production Council, will consider the likely outcome of this year’s harvest, the global position impacting on supply and demand, and the prospects for the UK industry after it leaves European Union. It will also focus on ways for growers to remain profitable against the combined background of the Government’s 25 year environment plan, trading outside the EU framework and possible changes in farm support. Places are priced at £37.50 inc coffee, lunch & tea.
