The first-ever UK Vining Pea Conference is to be sponsored by Syngenta.
The event, to be held on the 11 November at PGRO near Peterborough, will cover R&D, knowledge transfer, the Yes Peas! promotion campaign, industry insights, health and safety, and research into crop association membership.
It will culminate with keynote speaker Brian Youngs, from the British Frozen Food Federation.

We welcome the opportunity to support this exciting event for the whole industry."
