Water event on tap

USING water efficiently is becoming increasingly important for many crop-based businesses, and market pressure for top quality produce at affordable prices will drive more to adopt high-tech methods.

At the same time tighter supplies and erratic weather are complicating water management.

Water for Farming 99 at the Newark and Notts Showground, Newark on Wed, Nov 17 offers farmers the chance to see equipment and services and to develop practical solutions for their particular problems.

Organised by farmers weekly and Fusion Events the event will include trade stands, technical and educational exhibits and a full seminar programme with speakers from the Environment Agency, ADAS, and SCRI.

Tickets are £5 from Fusion Events (01539-734725 ).
