The BCPC Congress 2019 – “Understanding the demands and opportunities of a “Green Brexit” – how do we deliver food production alongside environmental enhancement?”

The 2019 BCPC Congress will encompass a wide range of topics relevant to the theme of how intensification of food production can be reconciled with environmental enhancement, whatever the UK’s future relationship with the EU. The Congress will seek to unearth some of the reality and raising issues resulting from the UK Government’s agricultural policy framework, in which farmers will be paid to deliver biodiversity, cultural landscapes, high quality water, air and soil rather than food.

The science, technology and policy issues relating to the national debate on how to support UK farming and food production whilst meeting the highest environmental and safety standards will be explored in a series of sessions.

Day 1 will start with a Plenary session on delivering both improved food production and “public goods”. This is followed by parallel sessions on current regulatory issues for pesticides and new breeding techniques and a Poster session, focusing on technological advances in applying crop production inputs to achieve both the essential future improvements in yields, and environmental protection.

Day 2 will address key technical and regulatory areas relating to “Green Brexit” agricultural and environmental policy. It will cover critical considerations for greatly increased implementation of IPM and the opportunities and regulatory challenges of precision agriculture, which will be the focus for this year’s CRD (the Chemicals Regulation Directorate) interactive workshop.
