This year’s event will be held on November 1st at London’s Marriott Grosvenor Square, where the most accomplished and knowledgeable people in the industry will pay tribute to their peers at the industry’s most prestigious and hotly-contested awards event.

“Over the past few months, our panel of judges has reviewed all the entries to produce a shortlist that displays the wealth of innovation, dedication and hard work that both groups and individuals in the global crop protection industry have demonstrated over the past year,” explains Sanjiv Rana, Editor-in-Chief of Agrow.
