We have been lucky to get Jon Myhill a leading agronomy specialist with the Maize Growers Association to run this 1 day course for us . This course is ideal for managers & operators that are new to maize growing, as well as providing the more experienced growers with an update on the new methods, to help achieve better maize crops.

We have been using Eastern Training Alliance since it started. It has always provided us
with a cost-effective, comprehensive schedule of training for all of our staff across the arable,
livestock, maintenance, business park, AD and office departments.
They keep abreast of industry requirements which, as we know have kept changing, and
through our annual meeting, we have been able to discuss the timings of our programme so
that it can fit in with our business needs.
We at J S Wright and Sons Limited have been members of Eastern Training Alliance for as long as I can remember. The communication is always efficient and the courses offered are first class with excellent trainers. You can stipulate if you want a certain trainer for a certain course if you find one that understands the way you work better than others, If a course is not offered you are given a guiding hand as to where you might find something suitable. We do not go anywhere else for any of our training unless Eastern training Alliance don’t offer it
