BCPC Congress 2020 to discuss environment for UK crop production outside the EU

The 17-19 November event feature CPA's Dave Bench, NFU's Nick von Westonholtz, AHDB, UCL, NIAB, Defra. SRUC and HSE.

British Crop Production Council's virtual congress over three consecutive mornings looks at the environment for UK crop production outside the EU and examines how a country can be independent yet stay interconnected in a global economy and ensure affordable, quality food for its citizens. 

Regulators, industry and academia will take an in-depth look at how plant protection product regulation can facilitate agricultural trade, examine the ruptures that can be caused if divergent systems compete in the same geographic space, and identify the opportunities that will emerge for the UK outside of the EU. 

The Congress will also feature developments in precision agriculture and sustainability, which could help UK farmers become even more productive in the future while putting yet more effort into managing the environment.

Delegates will still have the opportunity to put questions to the speakers live in Q&A sessions, browse exhibitor’s booths in the Expo, and connect with other delegates via the online Congress chat. Further, presentations will be available to view for 30 days post event.
