Nuffield Farming Scholars from across agriculture will be presenting the key findings and recommendations from their Scholarships during the 2019 Nuffield Farming Conference, taking place at the Chesford Grange Hotel, Kenilworth, Warwickshire, on 28 - 29 November 2019.
Euryn Jones, Head of Agriculture, HSBC UK, the conference’s Principle Sponsor, will open the conference proceedings: “We are proud of our relationship with the Nuffield Farming Scholarships Trust and are very happy to continue our support for this prestigious national conference.
"Never has it been more important for Scholars to help deepen the farming industry’s appreciation of the dynamics of progressive agriculture across the globe, and this event provides a unique platform to share and debate their insight to benefit a wider audience.”
“Presenting Scholars never fail to ignite lively debate with delegates both during formal question time and in the networking time built into the conference timetable,” says Mike Vacher, Nuffield Farming Director.
“With so many challenges to the UK agriculture and food sector, our Scholars bring back insight into innovations, best practice and technical advances from abroad that can make a huge difference to individual businesses and the industry as a whole.”
The Nuffield Farming Scholarships Trust (NFST) is a registered charity (that awards approximately 20 scholarships annually in the UK to young people between the ages of 22 and 45 from across the agricultural industry.
