A number of technical sessions at the recent CAFRE/UAS/UFU arable conference provided useful information and advice to farmers. Subjects such as our chemical registration system, using IPM to help control brome grasses and revised UK fertiliser recommendations were discussed.

RB209 is the Fertiliser Manual for UK growers. It is the equivalent of the Green Book here and it provides fertiliser use advice for crops and soil types across the UK. This has recently been reviewed.
