GrowSave, the industry funded body that promotes good energy practice in the protected cropping sector, has released details of an event to be held at the Farm Energy Centre on 29 January.
Farm Energy Centre commercial director Chris Plackett says Dutch researchers have recently developed growing strategies that improve sustainability and reduce energy use, without compromising crop yield or quality.
He said: "It’s very important that the UK industry has the opportunity to hear about these developments first hand so we have invited a panel of leading authorities to come to the UK to tell us all about it."
The speakers will outline the benefits that have been demonstrated by the research and deal with benchmarking and sustainability performance.
The seminar is free to HDC members. For more information go to www.growsave.co.uk
