Winter 2017-18


Thinking differently - responding to the challenges of 2018 and beyond.

Fundamental changes to sugar beet management are on the horizon, as many of our long-standing products come under threat, but what does this mean for the industry? Can the crop withstand increased pest and disease pressures, whilst continuing to gain yield? The BBRO have been researching many of the areas of concern and can offer some practical steps that could help reduce potential losses whilst further solutions are found. 

One of the best strategies to ensure your crop gets off to a good start, with a strong and healthy canopy, is to take a good long look at your soil health. Everyone's talking about it; soil health, soil biology, micro-organisms, worms, organic matter, the list goes on. The BBRO are making it their mission to go one step further and that's to stop the talking and get some action.

Join us and help in tackling the big issues with small solutions.

Tuesday 6th February, Dunston Hall, Norwich or Thursday 8th February, Belton Woods, Grantham.

9:00 - 12:30 (Refreshments served from 8:30)
