1st February hosted by Progreen, Bourne, Lincolnshire, PE10 0DN

In 2017, the Amenity Forum will once again be holding a series of FREE Updating Events at locations across the UK. These events are half day in length and focus on short presentations covering current topics delivered by specialists in these areas.
The overall emphasis for 2017 is on putting together an integrated programme for effective weed, pest and disease management.
