Exploiting climate change for UK farmers 08 May

One of the biggest challenges set to impact farmers in the future is the changing climate. Scientists have predicted increasingly long and hot summers and milder, shorter winters for UK farmers. How can we exploit these changes as opportunities? Longer, more productive growing seasons? Growing more speciality crops?

This lecture will examine the implications of a changing climate for British agriculture, what it means for what we grow and how we grow it, and a look at the pioneering research projects facilitating this adaptation.

The 'Exploiting Climate Change for UK Farmers' lecture will include a networking drinks reception, talks from Farmers Weekly, the main speaker and Syngenta UK.

The talk, run in association with Syngenta UK, takes place on Thursday 22 June at British Antarctic Survey, Cambridge, from 5.30pm until 8.15pm and is free to attend. Please register in advance by clicking here.
