Weed, pest & disease management - FREE Amenity Forum Event

1st February hosted by Progreen, Bourne, Lincolnshire, PE10 0DN

In 2017, the Amenity Forum will once again be holding a series of FREE Updating Events at locations across the UK. These events are half day in length and focus on short presentations covering current topics delivered by specialists in these areas.
The overall emphasis for 2017 is on putting together an integrated programme for effective weed, pest and disease management. The events also provide opportunity to discuss new developments and challenges and network with other professionals. So whatever your interest in the topic, these will be valuable events. If you are on the Amenity Register, they also carry CPD points.
At each event an update will also be provided on the Forum campaign to increase awareness of the importance of weed, pest and disease management and how it impacts upon every UK citizen, keeping Britain moving.
