The BCPC Congress 2020

“The environment for UK crop production outside the EU – understanding the opportunities”

2020 is heralding unprecedented challenges to UK agriculture. We know that Brexit should be “delivered” by the end of this year, but we are only just starting to understand the consequences. Adding to this is the global and national impact of the current coronavirus pandemic, which is also bringing its own challenges to the event!

Whilst the situation regarding conferences is still uncertain, pending UK Government guidance, we are cautiously optimistic that we will be able to bring the BCPC Congress 2020 to you in November as a live event. If we are able to proceed, we are excited to be hosting the event in North Yorkshire, the heart of agricultural regulations in the UK.

2020 programme

For the past few months, BCPC and TSG Forum has been creating a programme that looks at the environment for UK crop production outside the EU, examining how a country can be independent yet stay interconnected in a global economy and ensure affordable, quality food for its citizens.

Over two packed days, regulators, industry and academia will take an in-depth look at how plant protection product regulation can facilitate agricultural trade, examine the ruptures that can be caused if divergent systems compete in the same geographic space, and identify the opportunities that will emerge for the UK outside of the EU. The Congress will also feature developments in precision agriculture and sustainability, which could help UK farmers become even more productive in the future while putting yet more effort into managing the environment.

So, please save the 17-18 November in your diaries and keep checking the website for further updates. Seating is likely to be limited – to be contacted as soon as registration opens, please email [email protected]
