Upcoming Events

  • Soil Tillage, Traction and Compaction

    External Event

    9 March 2015 to 13 March 2015
    Harper Adams University, Newport, Shropshire TF10 8NB

    Course Overview

    The module is designed to provide a comprehensive programme in the sciences of soil tillage, traction and compaction and their application to improve tillage and traction efficiency, whilst minimising compaction.

    The module looks in detail at the design and function of implements used in primary, secondary cultivations and harvesting in relation to their impact on soil properties. The design and effect of different vehicles (tyres, tracks etc.) in combination with these implements/machines will also be considered

  • Current Perspectives in Weed Management

    External Event

    9 March 2015 to 13 March 2015
    Harper Adams University, Newport, Shropshire TF10 8NB

    Who is this course for?

    This course is for agronomists, plant breeders and crop protection professionals who wish to improve in the areas of plant science, plant ecology and applied weed management that form the basis of this module.

    The course covers the most current and up-to-date developments in weed science in a critical evaluative manner. It also provides an environment to support students in their identification of areas of weed science requiring further research and their design and development of experimental strategies to do this

  • Irrigation and Water Management

    External Event

    10 March 2015 to 11 March 2015
    Cranfield University, College Road, Cranfield, Bedfordshire, MK43 0AL

    Course Overview

  • Resource Capture by Crops

    External Event

    12 March 2015
    University of Nottingham School of Biosciences, Division of Plant and Crop Science, Sutton Bonington, College Road, LE12 5RD.

    Who Is This Course For?

    This course is aimed at individuals who wish to understand how crops function in terms of acquiring essential resources they need for growth and yield. The focus is on light (radiation) and water.

    Participants will gain an understanding of the underlying physiology that determines yield, biomass production and efficiency with which crops utilise resources in contrasting agro-environments. They will benefit from a hands-on approach to measuring these factors in the 2 day workshop.
