Research Leading Change is the theme for FAR’s conference, which is being held at Lincoln University at the end of June (27-28 June, 2019).Organiser Anna Heslop says the theme was selected to highlight the role of research in identifying the origin of a range of production and environmental issues and in finding solutions for them.
The conference will have three formal sessions, an afternoon of field visits and a conference dinner. The sessions will focus on Soil Water and Nutrients; Crop Protection and Innovation and Technology.
We are pleased to announce our keynote speakers are Professor Fiona Burnett, who chairs the UK Fungicide Resistance Action Group; the Hon Simon Upton, New Zealand’s Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment, Professor Ian Shaw, a toxicology expert from Canterbury University, and Andy Macfarlane, from Macfarlane Rural Business.
