Conference News


The organisers of the 2022 Brassica and Leafy Salad Conference are on the countdown to the long-awaited event. On Tuesday 25 October 2022 the conference returns to the East of England Arena & Events Centre, Peterborough.

The conference line up is set to bring together the two industries to showcase the latest technologies, research, and market insights through our dynamic speaker programme.

It is with great pleasure that we announce that John Deere is kindly sponsoring the conference as one of two Main Sponsors, and we look forward to welcoming them and viewing their large exhibition area.

Mark Smith, Strategic Account Manager at John Deere, said: “Farmers growing brassicas and leafy salads are facing the same challenges as many other agricultural and horticultural businesses in terms of optimising the productive efficiency of their enterprises.

“Using state-of-the-art machinery and the latest technological innovations can help them be more precise, use fewer inputs and maximise the use of labour, allowing them to be as efficient as possible without compromising on quality.

“As a company that leads the way in delivering innovations for farmers across the world, John Deere is proud to support this conference and help contribute ideas that help growers’ business become more sustainable.”
