The Arable Event, due to take place in Weston-under-Lizard on the 15th of June, and making the best use of nitrogen fertiliser will be highlighted.
Dr Sajjad Awan, a company agronomist at CF Fertilisers, will explain how increasing the efficiency of nitrogen fertiliser use can improve farm efficiency, profit margins and the environment.
Dr Awan said: “The rise in input prices has put significant strain on the British farming industry. It’s paramount to improve resource use efficiency, especially fertilisers.
“CF Fertilisers has conducted a large number of on-farm trials across the country. The results from these trials will be shared along with the strategies to improve business resilience in these unprecedented times.”
Speakers will also include Jude McCann, CEO of the Farming Community Network, who will speak about securing farmers’ resilience in a changing world. This focus on wellbeing will sit alongside technical demonstrations and seminars including crop plots presented by Syngenta and Wynnstay, a moisture meter clinic run by Sinar Technology and the chance to get hands-on with the latest machinery.
Those attending will be able to collect points towards BASIS and NRoSO qualifications, and there will be free refreshments, a programme and a cooler bag for visitors.
Arable Event manager Kelly Dolphin said: “I’m delighted that Dr Awan will be joining us as a guest speaker, joining a wide range of industry specialists on the programme.
“We are looking forward to a great day where farmers can get together to learn about the latest developments in agriculture while catching up with friends old and new in a relaxed, sociable setting.”
