The event is taking place on 24 November at the Kent-based centre. EMR staff will discuss topics such as how to improve water use efficiency in apple rootstocks and whether or not the use of quality compost in apple production affects soil diversity and crop growth.
This year's Amos Memorial Lecture is taking place after the event, when Dr Barrie Juniper from the University of Oxford will give a talk on the origin of the apple. A section named "a celebration of Bramley" is being included in the talk to mark the 200th anniversary of the Bramley's Seedling.
English Apples & Pears' Bramley Campaign, to mark the variety's bicentenary, has already enjoyed success this year, winning Best Themed Trade Stand at the National Fruit Show last month.
Since the start of the new season, the Bramley Campaign has dished up more than 8,000 portions of hot Bramley apple pie at shows around the country.
