Stakeholders workshop - pesticides - in Lampeter

Towards real-time predictions of agro-chemical field losses risks and costs – Wales stakeholder workshop. 

Victoria Hall, Lampeter

An opportunity for pasture-based livestock farmers and relevant stakeholders involved in advice / decision-making about agro-chemicals applications and management and water quality in grasslands in Wales, to have their say and actively influence a pioneering project.

The project, funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) through SARIC (Sustainable Agriculture Research and Innovation Club), aims to develop tools that will deliver real-time predictions of pesticide field losses and run-off risks and associated costs, allowing more informed decisions for agro-chemical management.

To make the tools relevant and tailored to stakeholders’ needs, both on farm and at catchment level, the workshop seeks to gather input and feedback from all stakeholders working in water quality and agriculture in grasslands areas in Wales, especially pasture-based livestock farmers /managers from the Afon Teifi area (others also encouraged to attend) as well as agronomists; agro-chemicals suppliers/ contractors/advisors; catchment advisors; and others working in relevant organisations.
