AFCP Annual Forum:- 'Education - the essential farming and foodchain input' took place in November 2019.
Education in farming and food production is vital for the future of the industry and the Forum provided the opportunity to hear about the many ways that our sector is inspiring and involving children and young people to learn about farming and the foodchain – and to hear about the exciting new research into producing more food in ways that will also benefit our planet.
Presentations are available here.
