  • Event Snip

The Agronomists’ Induction is a formal introduction to AHDB’s products, tools and services for agronomists early in their careers. 

Ultimately, the two-day event aims to help the agronomy industry bring benefit to AHDB levy payers and provides opportunity to kick-start career-long networking between AHDB staff and agronomists. 

If you are intrigued about the independent science behind our work, want to discover how we encourage on-farm trialling and want to make the most of our outputs, this event is for you. 

With a focus on the basics about what AHDB does (such as how our trials are set up and analysed), the event lays a vital foundation. It complements our flagship Agronomists’ Conference in December, which delivers the latest advances in agronomy. 

Although the Agronomists’ Induction focuses on the production of cereals and oilseeds, the wider rotation is also considered. It features contributions from partner organisations, such as BBRO, PGRO, BASIS and the Voluntary Initiative. It also covers related activity at AHDB Strategic Cereal Farms and Monitor Farms. 

VI Chair Phil Jarvis will be speaking on day 1 of the meeting, introducing the Voluntary Initiative and explaining what we do and also highlighting that the VI is 21 this year.

Encouraging learning, the event blends seminars with interactive workshops. It also includes a networking dinner in the evening of the first day and lunch on both days.
