The UK is becoming a more water-scarce country particularly in the south and east where a significant proportion of horticultural production is based. Demands are rising and horticulture is having to compete with other water users.
Growers are required to protect drinking water sources from the environmental impact of growing high quality horticultural crops.
Water is a growing issue. What could growers do now? How will be growing crops in ten years time?
The Warwick HRI Water day will provide growers with the latest information on Defra funded R&D that focuses on minimising water use in field vegetable and ornamental crop production. There will also be the opportunity to view Horticulture LINK funded field trials of automated fertigation in vegetable production.
