“This was our first time with a stand and variety plots at Cereals, and it was a great success with the two well-attended days keeping us busy with visits from growers and our trade contacts,” comments Chris Guest, LSPB Managing Director.
“The event was the ideal opportunity to mark the 125 year anniversary of NPZ by launching a competition for growers with a visit to the NPZ breeding station in northern Germany as first prize.
“We also hosted a reception for the trade to toast the NPZ track record of successful plant breeding and progress for agriculture and society – and were joined at the reception by two of our colleagues from NPZ in Germany.
“LSPB’s objective is to make a real difference to the UK farming industry through the combination of our UK-based breeding programmes and the expertise and cutting-edge technology of NPZ.
“All-in-all, with good visitor numbers and our two celebratory events, this year’s Cereals was very worthwhile for us. We look forward to Cereals 2023,” adds Chris.
