Harper Adams to host fertiliser and beekeeping events
Monday, 16 April 2012
The Nuffield Fertilizers for the Future event will take place at Harper Adams University College on Thursday this week (19 April), followed by British Beekeepers Association (BBKA) spring convention from Friday to Sunday.
The fertilisers event will look at comparisons in the effectiveness of conventional nitrogen fertilisers with that of alternatives such as waste and green manures, and at ways of optimising use of phosphates. See the Fusion Events website for details.
The beekeeping event has moved to the Shropshire site from its former base at the National Beekeeping Centre in Warwickshire due its growing popularity, said BBKA president Martin Tovey, who added:
"We look forward to welcoming a record number of visitors to the event with more than 1,200 tickets sold."
The event is open to non-BBKA members on the Saturday. See the BBKA website for more details and ticket information.
