CPNB 2024 is organised by The Association for Crop Protection in Northern Britain, a non-profit making Registered Charity that brings together the James Hutton Institute, Scotland's Rural College, Scottish Agricultural Science Agency, NatureScot and the agricultural trade in Scotland.
The Association for Crop Protection in Northern Britain (ACPNB) exists to run the Crop Production Northern Britain conference (CPNB) and is a registered charity SCO 14888. This long-established conference has often been referred to as the ‘Dundee Conference’ and was formerly called the ‘Crop Protection in Northern Britain’ conference. It was re-named in 2018 as the ‘Crop Production in Northern Britain’ conference reflecting its wider remit in practice and the broadening interests of participants. The CPNB conference has run in one form or another since the early 1970s and is held every two years. We welcome all contributions in the form of oral papers and posters on ‘Agriculture and the Environment’, ‘Combinable Crops’ and ‘Potatoes’ relevant to cropping in Northern Britain. Oral papers are normally about 15 minutes. After an online event in 2022 the conference returns to the Apex Hotel in central Dundee in 2024. We are excited to bring the community back together for an in-person event and for this year we will not have a hybrid option.
