It is important to be attached to an organisation which is at the forefront of research. Very difficult to put a value on our membership, but we would be worse off if we didn't have it - it makes you think and question more

My membership is such a reliable source of quality agronomic information. You get real value for your money - it's the same cost as a couple of bags of fertiliser

I get lots of information from lots of sources but the NIAB TAG information is what I look at first. Students want to know the source of information and knowing it comes from an impartial source is fundamental
