UK Onion & Carrot Conference & Exhibition to feature international line-up

An international line-up of guests is due to speak at next week's UK Onion & Carrot Conference & Exhibition at the East of England Showground in Peterborough.

Organised by the British Onions team, the conference includes speakers Wayne Minninger (US), Tatyana Ivchenko (Ukraine), Hans Christoph Behr (Germany) and Professor Frank Adamicki (Poland).

They will be discussing international developments in plant breeding, control of bacterial diseases, alternatives to herbicides, production of synthetic pesticides and good storage practice.

The effects of environmental issues, the credit crunch and promotional campaigns will be reviewed by Kent Business School, Asda (Wal-Mart), the Soil Association and the NFU.

Gregg Wallace, known for BBC TV series MasterChef and supplier to many top London restaurants, is hosting the dinner at the end of the event.
