Amazing to think that the first Oxford Farming Conference was held in 1936 and is now back for its 84th year (not quite as good as Hedges' 230 years of existence but who's counting?!). 

This is such an exciting event in the farming calendar and I'm always interested in what people have to say about the industry; it's such a challenging time for agriculture at the moment that the gathering is even more significant.

If you can't make it to the actual event key sessions are being live streamed on the internet - just register in advance and you're good to go: I am definitely tuning in for Alice Stanton's key note science lecture on Wednesday.... one not to miss.
