Do you wish you could look into the future and see what will happen? This free event will help you understand the science behind future agri-environment schemes.
As well as sharing their expertise the scientists want to hear from you about farm management. Tell them what future research would be useful to you and give them some insight into what it is like to manage for both food production and the environment.
