BCPC Awards 2018
BCPC’s mission is to add value in areas of crop production, involving translation of science and technology into information that improves environmentally sound crop protection and production, in particular in areas not well served by other, independent, bodies or initiatives. This involves publications and responses to consultations, policies, legislation and press reports all made under the recognised BCPC brand of authority and independence.Our mission also includes recognition of those contributing to the advancement of research and its translation into tools and techniques that benefit crop production.
The BCPC Medals scheme started in 1985, to recognize such achievements, particularly where these were not well covered by more academic awards. Since then, over 50 awards have been made. BCPC is pleased to receive nominations for an award at any time. By popular demand, medals were replaced with framed certificates in 2011, and the presentations are now known as the BCPC Awards.
One BCPC Award was presented in 2018 by Dr Colin Ruscoe, Executive Chairman, BCPC at the BCPC Congress, Hilton Metropole Hotel, Brighton, UK. The recipient was: Anne Thompson.
“I am delighted and honoured to receive this award,” said Anne. “I have had a wonderful career and had the privilege of working with exceptional people. Innovation in product research, precision agriculture and digital solutions is set to provide an evolution in delivering agricultural output and I envy those new students starting today in what will be a whole new science of possibilities.”
