Event description: 

Cranfield University in collaboration with Rothamsted Research, NIAB, Newcastle University and University of East Anglia have received funding from Defra to cooperate in a multidisciplinary project entitled Knowledge gaps and research priorities to optimise the use of organic amendments for sustainable intensification of UK agricultural systems. As part of this project, two workshops will be organised in East Anglia and South West to cover the arable and livestock areas respectively. It is recognised that the processes and challenges are different for the two sectors, but there are also opportunities for overlaps in knowledge and opportunities, which can be optimised.

This is an invitation to farmers, policy makers, researchers, waste management companies, fertiliser companies and researchers to attend the workshop free of charge. Participants to this workshop are invited to share their practical experiences of using organic amendments in the arable sector.

BASIS point are guaranteed for those who need to collect them.
