BeetCast (June): Pushing boundaries with barley and weed control
Join us at Morley Farms with farm manager David Jones and BBROâ€™s Head of Operations Stephen Aldis; checking on our under-sown barley work and discussing weed control.
BBRO has been given an opportunity to move our office and lab across the Norwich Research Park to a new location in the Centrum Building (NRP Zone 2). The move will take place w/c 14 June so any visitors to BBRO from w/c 21 June will be to our new location. There are new instructions for visitors and these can be found on our contacts page.
Our new address is: BBRO, Centrum, Norwich Research Park, Norwich, NR4 7UG
Phone numbers and email addresses will remain unchanged.
Centrum offers us several benefits over the Innovation Centre including a much more modern building (only 7 years old), much better visitor and staff parking, a serviced reception, a lovely canteen, great meeting areas and is generally a much nicer environment for staff and visitors alike. In a nutshell there is no downside for BBRO and in terms of occupation costs (rent, service charge, insurance and business rates) this also remains the same.
BBRO and COVID-19 – update 24th March 2021
Staff will start to return to our BBRO offices from Monday 29th March 2021. However, this will be on a phased return and not all staff will be in every day, with the remainder still working from home. We are still encouraging virtual meetings and remain very vigilant about face-to-face contact until we are out of full lockdown, which is currently planned for 21st June 2021. We will however be continually reviewing the situation and adhering to government guidelines should anything change.
To get in touch with us please see the contact details for our team and we will be happy to hear from you. We want to reassure you that Team BBRO are working hard on your behalf as usual and, while complying with all the current restrictions, we are continuing to carry out research work, analyse recent results and deliver new information to growers.
BBRO summer field events
We are hoping to be able to organise some field events later in the summer. It is likely these will again be run in small groups with pre-booking necessary and allocated time slots for delegates. Please keep an eye on the events page and look out for BBRO emails to inform you of what’s coming up.
We are, as always, at your service and ‘by your side’ with your sugar beet crop.
Please refer to our contact us page for direct staff contact details.
BBRO has a team of scientists and field trials operators that work hard to conduct robust research projects and deliver technical information through a wide range of knowledge exchange activities e.g. technical publication, summer open days, winter conferences, demonstration farm events and a range of social media activities.
The BBRO Executive Board provides guidance on the strategic direction of the organisation and its members are responsible for setting the levy. Working alongside this, the Stakeholder Committee provides guidance on future industry priorities and oversees BBRO’s funded programme of research and knowledge exchange activities.
To ensure BBRO’s research programme remains aligned with the industry needs we welcome feedback or comments on any of our current activities or suggestions for new work that will help to deliver our strategic objectives. You can contact us via email at email@example.com
Keep up to date with BBRO activities and your opportunities to find out more with our news, events, developments and other information.
We share the research results with sugar beet growers through our publications and at our events.
