Association for Crop Protection in Northern Britain

CPNB 2016 is organised by The Association for Crop Protection in Northern Britain, a non-profit making Registered Charity which brings together The James Hutton Institute, Scotland's Rural College, Scottish Agricultural Science Agency, SNH and the agricultural trade in Scotland.

 

There are five sessions of invited papers and research reports with ample time for discussion. There are also two poster sessions. The Conference has been allocated a total of 12 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points (6 points for each day attended) towards the BASIS Professional Register.

 

Aims of the Conference

The aim of the Conference is to bring together farmers, agricultural and horticultural advisers, the technical staff of the agricultural chemical trade and all those concerned with recent advances in chemical and non-chemical crop protection, including advisory, research and government organisations, to discuss crop protection problems prevalent in northern environments. In addition to those from Scotland, northern England and Northern Ireland, the Conference will be of relevance to many others in Northern Europe.

 

It is the Association's policy to grant a concessionary rate to students. Individual students can attend at a concessionary rate of £50 per day (£60 after 1st Feb 2016), including lunch. Booking forms (available from November 2015) must be accompanied by a signed statement from the student's supervisor attesting that he/she is a full-time student.
