The Oxford Farming Conference


    IN view of the interest aroused by the two conferences already held, the Oxford Farming Conference is to be established as an annual event. At the same time it has been decided that in future years the Conference shall not be confined to mechanized farming but shall provide a common meeting ground for farmers, research workers and others, at which any subjects of particular interest to British agriculture may be discussed. The next Conference will be held on January 4–7, 1938, and will deal mainly with the maintenance of fertility, with special reference to the Government's new agricultural policy and to the control of weeds and pests. Further information can be obtained from the Conference Secretary, 10 Parks Road, Oxford.
