WHERE do environmental issues fit into worldwide farming? That is the question being asked by the Farming and Wildlife Advisory Group through its Getting off the Fence conference, sponsored by Rhône-Poulenc and in association with farmers weekly.

Leading speakers will address key environment issues at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, on Nov 30, including the environments integration into the Common Agricultural Policy, the current picture in the UK and US, biodiversity, a retailers view and possible strategies for the future.

Tickets cost £75 (£55 for FWAG members) from FWAG, NAC, Stoneleigh, Warks CV8 2RX (01203-696699).
