The Responsibilities of Independence – 6 December 2016

Stockbridge Technology Centre are pleased to announce their forthcoming event on “The Responsibilities of Independence” on Tuesday 6 December 2016.

The Brexit process could have a significant impact on UK horticulture.  This event creates the opportunity to consider and discuss what EU departure may mean for Plant Health and Crop Protection for the horticultural industry.  The UK will require new crop protection and plant health policies and there is an opportunity for industry to influence future strategy.

We are expecting this to be a popular event so please book your place early using the link
