Young Innovators’ Forum special event at the BBSRC stand (702) at Cereals on 15th June

At Cereals this year there will be an opportunity for young farmers and early career scientists to exchange views with agricultural researchers; creating a chance to help shape the future direction of agri-research.

Chat about issues you are facing, find out about new agricultural innovations and discuss how research in the pipeline may be able to help you now or in the future.

The event is to be held on the BBSRC stand and will include the latest research from Rothamsted Research, John Innes Centre and Aberystwyth University’s IBERS.

Posters include:

  • How the Raspberry Pi – an easy to programme low cost computer that is being used by Tim Peake for experiments in space – can be used to understand seed vigour in oil seed rape crops
  • If keeping wheat foliage greener for longer will sustain photosynthesis and improve yield
  • A new foliage treatment for grasses that will increase protein concentration without additional nitrogen application
  • The latest advice on blackgrass management
  • Crops for renewable energy

With time to network and cake and ale flowing, come along to stand 702 and participate in this special event.

Event runs from 15:30-17:00 on the first day of Cereals 15 June 2016, and stay for our evening reception from 17:00 onwards and will include wine and canapes.

Young Innovators’ Forum is organised by Agri-Tech East and sponsored by The Morley Agricultural Foundation. It is designed to encourage researchers and young farmers to work together to shape the future direction of agri-research.
