Hort Innovation, in collaboration with the National Farmers Federation, are giving young growers the chance to join a trade and export delegation to China.

In China, you will meet with research and development organisations that are at the cutting edge of sustainable, innovative agriculture, as well as meet Chinese farmers who are implementing novel technologies and practices every day.
