The series of nine PGRO and Syngenta Roadshows will take place at venues around the UK, starting in York on January 17 and ending in Berwick on Tweed on March 2.
The PGRO and Syngenta Roadshows offer an opportunity to ask experts about subjects including the ability of the industry to keep up with soaring demand, the best pulses to grow in the spring and how to choose between the latest insecticides and pesticides.
PGRO is also staging its oilseeds and pulses conference with Home Grown Cereals Authority at the East of England Showground in Peterborough on January 26.
LOOKING TO THE FUTURE PGRO chief executive Salvador Potter.
PGRO chief executive Salvador Potter said: "Overall pulse production in UK is now recovering from its all-time low in 2007, but PGRO levy income has inevitably suffered as a result.
ARABLE farmers from Northumberland and the Borders can find out how to get free nitrogen fertiliser worth up to pounds 60 per hectare, along with the prospects and advice for growing profitable peas and beans next season, at a meeting titled "A Blueprint for Pulses" being organised by PGRO and Syngenta next week.
Topics being addressed by PGRO advisers at the event include new varieties, research into agronomy to tackle pests, weeds and diseases, along with the economics of free nitrogen and the benefits pulse crops pump into the farming rotation.
Mr McKeown supports PGRO advice that one set of traps is required for each individual field up to 10ha or for a block of peas up to about 50ha, and above these areas two sets are required.
