Leek Growers Agronomy Day

by Tim Mudge

On Thursday 19th February leek growers and agronomists gathered in Cambridgeshire for the Leek Agronomy Day organised through the British Growers Office, by the Leek Growers Association.

The event attracted over 100 visitors who were able to visit leek field trials, run by NIAB and also hear a series of presentations from speakers on research projects, the HDC crop protection strategy and an update on the British Leeks PR Campaign.

There was also a trade exhibition for all those involved in production or allied to the industry. The day was kindly sponsored by Seminis and Syngenta and supported by HDC and NIAB.
