The ISHS International Carrot and other Apiaceae Symposium, due to be held this autumn in York, has been postponed.

The event was due to take place between 4 and 7 October 2021 in North Yorkshire, however due to ongoing concerns surrounding the impact of Covid-19, the decision has been made to postpone what would have been the third event.

Organisers said they are working with the International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS), sponsors and the event’s scientific committee to finalise a new date for the symposium, which they plan to announce shortly.

A statement said: 'We can already confirm that the reorganised Symposium will include attendance at the British Carrot Growers Association Demonstration Day. Details of the abstract submission timings will be released when the date is confirmed. All ticket sales will be automatically transferred to the new event date. For more information please contact the British Growers office on 01507 602427 or'
