There have been several times over recent years where the gap between demand for water and the capacity to supply has become worryingly narrow.
In July 2019 the AHDB Water Resources Management Scientist, Nicola Dunn, said: “Following last year’s drought and a dry winter, we’ve been monitoring the water resource situation closely this season. Earlier in the year we warned that irrigation may be interrupted later in the season. While there has been some rainfall, water resources are still challenged particularly in the east and south east of the country."
Against this background, this Agri-Tech Week event, hosted by AHDB, is looking at effective use of irrigation and best practice for soil and water management for farmers and growers in East AngliaFind out more »

The circular economy represents a destination towards which our society and economy need to rapidly move. A true circular economy seeks to decouple economic activity from the consumption of finite resources, and it will design-out waste. Today's food & farming sector provides a great deal of potential for moving towards this goal, and many Agri-TechE members are already putting these principles into practice.Find out more »
