Nuffield annual conference heads to Scotland

Bookings are now open for this year’s Nuffield Farming Scholarships Trust annual conference which will be held in Glasgow, at the Radisson Blu Hotel from 21 to 23 November.

The conference provides a platform for 22 Nuffield Scholars to present their findings and recommendations from 18 months’ worth of global travel and research, with an aim of advancing the British farming industry.
