Farmer And Agronomist Resources

Farmer And Agronomist Resources

ADAS provides tailored support packages to farmers, agronomists, and to companies with interests in agronomy and cropping practice.

We deliver knowledge transfer services, produce publications, and have specialist speakers who attend meetings, workshops and conferences to provide expertise on a range of subjects.

We are also able to provide training on a 1:1 or group basis on a range of agricultural subjects. We provide a basic introduction to agriculture training for non-specialists (e.g. water companies) through to more detailed training on specialist topics. These topics include, but are not limited to: 

We also produce crop specific publications which are provided weekly during the growing season by email. These notes cover; what is happening in the field now; what to look out for; actions for the coming week, weed, pest and disease issues; plus other important current topics.
