The impact of climate change on herb production is to be the focus of herb "Exploratory Day"

The impact of climate change on herb production is one of the many topics that are being debated at this year's Exploratory Day, hosted by the British Herb Trade Association (BHTA) and the Horticultural Development Company (HDC).

The joint BHTA and HDC event is being held on (Tuesday) November 19 at Warwick Crop Centre in Wellesbourne.

It is taking place following the success of last year’s (November 2012) event.

Topics discussed last year (2012) will be further discussed this year – as will subjects not currently in HDC Herb research and development (R&D) projects.

Speakers include Warwick University’s Dr Paul Neve – who is giving a talk on the impact of climate change on weeds – and Fargro’s Joshua Burnstone, who is discussing biopesticides for herbs.
