New Crop Opportunities, the electronic farm management aid, launched by BCPC in 2007, has reached an important milestone with the number of ‘novel crop’ news stories featuring on the website now more than 1,000.
“I think it is true to say that the material we feature on New Crop Opportunities make it the only news source tailored to novel crops and their uses,” explains experienced agronomist Dr Sally Francis, editor of New Crop Opportunities. “Our aim is to provide topical and selective news on the all the crops featured in the resource whether they are novel crops or new uses for established crops.”
New Crop Opportunities provides a wealth of advice to growers and advisers considering a move to growing alternative crops. Gaining a balanced unbiased perspective helps to make the right decision in taking that step and finding the best solution to suit the farm’s location, soil type, water availability, pH and work load. Having access to a resource which provides regular updates on what is happening in the fast moving world of new crop opportunities including new markets, new uses and new technical information such as varieties and agronomy, is a real must.
