RSK to host RAMIRAN webinar

Event date: September 15, 2020

Missed the webinar? Watch again below.

RSK company ADAS, partnering with Rothamsted Research and Bangor University, UK, will host a webinar for RAMIRAN instead of the planned conference.

John Williams, Head of Soils and Nutrients, ADAS, who will deliver the webinar’s opening remarks, said that the webinar will provide an “excellent platform to highlight the issues and describe practices to maximise nutrient use efficiency, minimise losses to the environment and maximise the soil carbon benefits”.

Owing to the continuing coronavirus pandemic, the 18th International RAMIRAN conference is being postponed until next year, when it will be held at the University of Cambridge, UK.

RAMIRAN (Recycling of Agricultural, Municipal and Industrial Residues in Agriculture Network) is a research and expertise network that aims to improve nutrient use and minimise the environmental impact from livestock manure and other organic material in agricultural systems. The conference was last held in 2017 and attracts up to 250 global delegates.

The meeting is free and open to all; however, interested parties must register as places are limited.
