This year CUPGRA is especially proud to host the inaugural Eric Allen Memorial Lecture, 'Understanding how potatoes grow determines how to grow potatoes', with reflections from Robert Allen, Neil Gudmestad and Mark Stalham. Delegates are also invited to the Potato Barons’ Christmas Feast in St John’s College Great Hall on the evening of 14 December, with guest speaker Nick Vermont.

The conference is sponsored by Frontier Agriculture and Grimme UK and organised by NIAB CUF
