The No-Till Show and Conference 2017
29 June 2017 09.00

Groundswell invites you to a two day conference and demonstration: Grass-Fed Day, 28th June and No-Till Day, 29th June. A lot has happened since the first Groundswell show, which could have fundamental impact on no-till farmers and Conservation Agriculture.

From Brexit and the on-going question about what this means for British farms, to the glyphosate debate. There has also been increased awareness of the power that farmers have in reducing flooding through effective use of their land, as well as wider awareness of the role the soil plays in reducing CO2 in our atmosphere. The voice of no-till farmers at a national level on the BBC has become louder, and there does seem to be a pricking up of politician’s ears that Conservation Agriculture is worth paying attention to. We have a lot of inspiring speakers lined up, including David Montgomery and Anne Biklé (USA), Dr Christine Jones (Australia), Graeme Sait (Australia) and Dr Sarah Beynon (UK),as well as more in-field demonstrations, more talks from real farmers, more opportunities for Q&A and discussion.

Dialogue on Land And Security: the business of land restoration and trust
11 July 2017 10.00 CAUX Initiatives of Change welcome you to their conference, 11 – 15 July 2017. The case for tackling land degradation and conflict is clear. Land degradation costs businesses around $40 billion a year, and is a real risk to the future of the food, fibre, forestry and bioenergy industries. It reduces yields, threatens harvests, and destroys people’s livelihoods, until they’re forced to move to find work. Add weak governance and other socio-economic inequalities, and conflict often follows. The solution? Uncovering new ideas to restore land and build trust, increase private investment, reduce the risk of conflict, lower the impact of climate change, and create new markets. That’s what the ground-breaking discussions at the Caux Dialogue on Land and Security 2017 aim to achieve.

We will highlight and explore the needs and opportunities for private sector investment in land restoration and trust building initiatives, and connect policymakers, investors and businesses with the very people leading the fight for land restoration across the world. It’s a unique opportunity to find solutions and plan of actions for urgent issues of our time. Read more ….

Agri-Tech East Pollinator: Exporting Agri-Tech to Sub-Saharan Africa
12 July 2017 08.30

UK business and entrepreneurs are taking their knowledge to Africa (and the rest of the world) to help improve crop yields, sustainability and agri-technology – and anyone interested in finding out more can attend an Agri-Tech East event on 12 July in Cambridge, UK.

Have you thought of exporting your agri-tech innovation or knowledge outside the UK? Are you already an experienced exporter looking for new market opportunities?Sub-Saharan Africa is poised for huge growth in agriculture and agribusiness – by 2030 it is projected to be a US$1 trillion industry (compared with US$313 billion in 2010). With particular demand for UK innovations in crops, mechanisation, agro-processing and storage, this could be the opportunity to work alongside the major companies currently operating in the market, such as Massey Ferguson, John Deere and Syngenta.

We’ll be hearing some case studies from agri-tech companies who are exporting their agri-know-how or building businesses in this exciting market, as well as hearing from the UK’s Department for International Trade about the support available from the British Government.

Find out how to gain an initial foothold, grow overseas business activities even faster or just explore if it is an opportunity for you.
