Workshop - Floods, Droughts & Polytunnels

Polytunnels in Kent_76490This event, which is being run by Kent County Council as part of an EU funded project, will take place on Thursday 28 January from 2pm until 4.30pm for Kent growers. Kent has some of the highest concentrations of protected soft fruit production under polytunnels in the UK. The irrigation water needs of these crops are significant and increasing, and climate change is affecting rainfall patterns and the availability of water. Polytunnels can concentrate extreme rainfall leading to flooding and soil erosion as well as the loss of valuable water. This workshop is an opportunity to explore technological solutions to these problems. Register your interest e: VG9tLkhlbmRlcnNvbkBrZW50Lmdvdi51aw== with your name, organisation and postcode by Friday 22 January and you will then receive a Zoom invitation from 25 January onwards.
