UK: Only a few places left for upcoming British Tomato Conference

The high quality programme for the 2013 British Tomato Conference, organised by the British Tomato Growers’ Association, held in Coventry (UK) and sponsored by Phillips Lighting has now been confirmed (see: www.britishtomatoes.co.uk ) with a little over two weeks to go the response so far has been excellent promising one of the best conferences in recent years.




The event is launched with the conference dinner, attended by a cross-section of the industry, a superb opportunity for networking, be it growers catching up after a long season, through to suppliers, seed companies and major retailers.

The evening before the conference starts on a more serious and important note with the pre dinner address from Christine Tacon CBE, the UKs newly appointed Groceries code adjudicator. With a conference hall of growers and their customers, this is sure to provide some food for thought and spawn some interesting conversation over dinner.

The following day the main conference agenda brings together key commercially relevant technical updates on current new disease control strategies, rootstocks and biological control along with speakers discussing energy and legislation.

Mary Bosley, the chair of the new Horticultural Innovation Partnership (HIP) will speak to us about current issues relating to this important new government lead strategy. Unlocking the potential of innovation and growth through science. Amongst other interesting topics covered on the day will be those associated with new, nascent technologies, such as those related to the exciting potential of LED lighting and biological approaches to the management of crop pests.

All this and a range of excellent trade stands makes the British Tomato Growers’ Association annual conference a must for any Tomato grower with the wide range of topics covered a real benefit for other protected crop types.

Dr Phil Morley, the Associations’ Technical Director comments ‘The British Tomato Growers’ Association Annual conference 2013 promises to be one of the best ever, a range of high quality speakers, Trade stands and sponsor input with the opportunity to network with other delegates and participants ensure this continues to be an event not to miss and a key event in the British crop production calendar as well as fantastic value for money whether delegates take part in the annual dinner the night before the conference or simply join us on the day of the conference’.
