Preparations For Oxford farming Conference

Sorry that I have not been blogging as much recently but I have been busy preparing my presentation for this years Oxford Farming Conference This will be the first time that I have attended this prestigious conference and there I will be, up on the podium!  What an honor!  My subject title is "Will Precision Farming Change The Face of UK Agriculture"  I have been working on the speech on and off since September, although to be honest it has only been in the last 3 weeks that the magnitude on what I have to do has sunk in.  The list of speakers is very impressive so I think there will be some very interesting papers delivered and good discussions generated.  
Anyway, the talk and the presentation is coming along nicely now, although I will feel sorry for my wife and children who will have to listen to more than one rehearsal, over the Christmas and New Year period!
Nerves aside I am really looking forward to the event, catching up with some of my 2013 Nuffield Scholars and exercising the grey matter over a glass or two of orange juice.
At the same time I have been thinking about my Nuffield project, blog still to come, so the pressure is starting to mount!
