For the last few years, CF Fertilisers have worked with both Reading and RAU Universities on a nutrient competition where the successful winner receives a prize to be the CF sponsored scholar at the prestigious Oxford Farming Conference.
This year’s winner was Alexandra Gibb who attended this year’s OFC conference from the 6th to the 8th January themed on ‘Growing a Healthy society’. In addition to the main conference sessions with leading industry speakers and debates, there are specific scholar events, including a reception, workshop and they also attend the main event dinners which provide the chance to meet with other delegates to discuss the industry and subjects raised at the conference.
Alexander reports. “I had a great time at the conference. It was interesting with topical issues being discussed and was a good place to network. It was also a fantastic experience staying in halls at Christchurch. I think the competition was interesting to research. Overall the experience was very good”.
CF are pleased to be able to support the future generation of agriculture. https://www.ofc.org.uk/scholars
