- Water abstraction & storage
- Water trading
- Soil structure, cultivation & fertility
- Plant genetics & breeding
- Arable and livestock specific soil workshops
- Technology & innovations of the future
Opening the conference Professor Tim Benton, Global Food Security Champion will give delegates an overview of the challenge to produce more with less and the impact an increasingly unpredictable climate is going to have on UK food production in the future.
A high profile panel, will then debate 'The Value of Water' giving a unique insight into the complex picture of water supply and demand, hearing how different parts of the supply chain value water and debating what needs to change in the future to secure water for British Agriculture.
A choice of technical workshops allows you to tailor your day, offering practical advice to take home to your own businesses and an insight into the science and technology which potentially holds the key to producing more with less.
Bringing together over 400 individuals and a number of suppliers, Soil & Water LIVE is an excellent networking opportunity, offering the chance to get up to speed with the latest thinking and gather information and advice specific for your business.
