Webinar: Novel and Alternative Crops – Improving the Rotation AND the Bottom Line?

 Registration is closed for this event

Consumer tastes and trends are changing, and with them is an opportunity for agriculture. From ancient grains to unusual legumes, an increased demand for veg-based products and plant milks, this represents a chance for change.

Join us for this FREE online webinar where we’ll be hearing about the ups and downs of growing alternative crops to explore new markets and drive on-farm profitability, as well as potentially growing crops suited to a changing climate.
