  1. This session explores the impact of Brexit, new trade deals and the challenges and opportunities for UK producers in the global market through the lens of experts involved at the coalface across the industry.

  2. Turning a commodity crop into a value-added product can be central to building a more resilient and sustainable arable farming business. Three producers have taken different paths to achieve that end goal – a beer brewery, high quality pressed oilseed rape and a bakery.

  3. The pandemic has re-invigorated consumers’ interests in local food and their local environment. It’s been a great opportunity for many farming businesses. From dog walking to tourism, this session explores some of the myriad of enterprises that bring new income streams to complement the core farming business. 

  4. Farming is a human health solution, not only through nutrition but also in direct medical benefits. Researchers are tailoring plant metabolism to deliver healthier oils in oilseed rape, while lavender, mint and hemp are just of the potential new crops delivering natural health answers.

  2. Operating directly in a global market will likely lead to even greater volatility. Using data on market and price movements, independent analysis and price risk-management tools will be key. This session explores some of the marketing tools that are now at farmers’ disposal to support decision-making – and importantly, why and how businesses should find time to employ marketing strategies that are timely, accurate and relevant.

  3. There’s a strong pull for the UK to grow more protein plants – as a replacement to soya animal feed as well as to satisfy a growing consumer demand for plant protein. Research, market insights and practical experience are at the heart of this session on the value of legumes, which currently occupy only 4% of the UK’s cropping, in displacing imported protein feed while providing a natural source of fertiliser.

  4. Anaerobic digesters using food and farm waste, biomass from poplars, willows or miscanthus, wind and solar energy are all renewable answers to fuel and heat production. How can farming businesses integrate them most effectively into their systems to reap the benefits?
